Welcome to APICS Twin Cities - Soon to be ASCM Twin Cities

APICS Twin Cities is transitioning to a new name: ASCM Twin Cities to align with our global parent organization ASCM - The Association for Supply Chain Managment.

APICS Twin Cities Chapter Response to COVID19

The health and safety of our members, guests, and community is our top priority. Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our community, the APICS Twin Cities Chapter Board of Directors has made the following decisions with regard to our current and future programs, effective immediately:

  • ALL APICS Certification Review Courses, Workshops, Seminars, Networking, and Professional Development Meetings will continue virtually until such time that it is deemed safe to gather as a community once again.

We will continuously monitor the conditions and the recommendations of the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health.  Adjustments will be made as needed.  Updates will be posted here and shared with our members via email and social media-follow our-LinkedIn Page.

In the meantime, please continue to network and share with our community via the APICS Twin Cities Chapter LinkedIn Group.  Social media will become our source for connecting..

If you have an idea or recommendation to utilize the resources of our community, please share that with us.  We are open to any and all opportunities to collaborate safely as we all navigate this difficult situation.
