Everyone seems to agree that APICS education is of value in the work place for both the individual and the employer.  However, there does not seem to be a consensus on the value of obtaining an APICS certification, either from the employer or employee perspective.  

In the November Professional Development Meeting for the Sundance Chapter, we will discuss this topic in detail as well as related topics to see if we can achieve a consensus of sorts.

We will also review APICS educational offerings over the years and what is available today in the way of educational classes and other information that may surprise you.  Come join us on November 20th for this interactive session led by Gary Provance, the new Director of Membership on the Sundance Chapter Board of Directors.
