“We are pleased to be working with the Supply Chain Council (SCC),” said Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE and chief executive officer of APICS, the Association for Operations Management. “This collaboration brings together the expertise of both organizations to develop the knowledge of the members of APICS and SCC and deepen the skills sets of supply chain and operations management professionals.”

“APICS and SCC offer complementary products. APICS education and training programs provide a foundation for the supply chain improvement activities that SCC promotes. We are excited about the possibilities presented by this alliance,” added Joseph Francis, executive director of SCC.

Through this agreement, members of SCC are eligible for member pricing on APICS certification exams and educational events, and APICS members will benefit from access to SCORmark®, SCC’s benchmarking offering, and will receive member rates for SCC events. In addition, SCC will conduct Webinars for APICS members.
