San Fernando Valley APICS


The San Fernando Valley Chapter of APICS strives to be the largest, strongest chapter in the west, engaging individuals and organizations. APICS is recognized as the premier provider of research, education and certification programs focused on supply chain and operations management.


It is the mission of the San Fernando Valley Chapter of APICS to provide the business community of Southern California, and specifically the San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita and Antelope valley areas with the leadership to make these companies world class in their supply chain and operations management and attain the highest degree of competitiveness. We are dedicated to making our area of service the premier center of effective business operations. To achieve this we will be the premier source of strategic leadership and education in supply chain and operations management for all industries.


The San Fernando Valley Chapter of APICS offers a full range of programs and materials on the latest business management concepts and techniques.

Since 1957, APICS members locally, nationally and internationally have been at the forefront of such management and manufacturing achievements as the use of material requirement planning (MRP) in the work place and the introduction of dynamic philosophies that affect all areas of manufacturing.

Our internationally recognized Certified In Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) program and our more recently introduced Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) programs are the standards by which companies gauge individual knowledge of supply chain/operations management concepts and methods.
