APICS1 (800x800)
On May 12, 2016, the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) honored American Public University (APUS) by recognizing their virtual APICS chapter with a plaque.  The plaque ceremony formally recognizes the continuous industry partnership between APICS and the APUS Transportation & Logistics and Reverse Logistics programs.  The plaque was presented by the APICS President of the Washington DC chapter, David Rega, as a sign of appreciation of the cooperation between the two organizations.  

In attendance at the presentation was Dr. Chad Patrizi, Dean, School of Business for APUS (left), David Rega, APICS President, Washington DC chapter (center) and Dr. Stacey Little, Program Director, Transportation & Logistics Management for APUS and Faculty Advisor for the APICS virtual chapter (right).

The plaque presentation came after a successful Industry Advisory Council (IAC) meeting, whose theme was Progressive Partnerships.  The APUS School of Business Industry Advisory Council (IAC) was formed in 2004 to provide forums for business professionals and industry leaders to assist school programs to accomplish their educational mission.  This year’s IAC gathered input from over 40 business professionals to better understand the needs of business and what skills that APUS graduates need to be successful in their chosen fields.
