Message from the Board

Welcome to the APICS-Central Iowa Chapter!

APICS-CI has been serving the Central Iowa area for many years.  We serve over 150 members in the middle of Iowa.  We are a non-profit educational organization addressing supply chain management challenges, and providing professional development opportunities to our members.

We offer monthly dinner meetings September through June. Attending meetings is a great way to network and expand your knowledge of supply chain management.

Certification Review workshops are offered every month in both public and in-house offerings. Watch our Education Schedule for the latest offerings.

We are always looking for energetic volunteers to help manage the chapter. If you are interested in developing leadership skills then ask any Board Member how you can help.

We look forward to seeing you at an APICS-CI event or helping you expand your supply chain management knowledge.
