ASCM Membership

The ASCM and APICS membership community of 270 local APICS chapters and 33 International Associates supports nearly 35,000 members in 20,000 manufacturing and service industry companies worldwide. By joining APICS, professionals keep up-to-date on industry best practices, new technologies and techniques, and they gain access to exclusive members-only resources, networking, and cost savings on educational materials. Employers who endorse APICS membership for their employees create a more capable, knowledgeable, and productive workforce.

Become an ASCM Member in 2019!

For over 60 years, members have relied on APICS to deliver world-class certification and career advancement resources. In recent years, the supply chain landscape has been changing at an increasingly rapid pace, fueled by technological advances, consumer demands and more.

The leaders of APICS recognized these changes as an opportunity to fulfill a market need by creating the Association for Supply Chain Management. In early 2019, APICS members will become ASCM members, reflecting this change in landscape.

ASCM will continue to provide the industry-leading APICS certifications you’ve come to trust, combined with expanded offerings—new products, new partnerships, new information about the latest trends in the industry—designed to elevate your supply chain career. 

Join ASCM to empower yourself and your organization with knowledge. A membership is valid one year from the date the application was received at APICS headquarters.
