The APICS Advantage

Supply chain and operations management is one of the fastest growing professions globally, creating great demand for top notch, highly competent professionals. APICS research, education and certification advances supply chain professionals to excel in the profession and become the leaders who will transform supply chain organizations for peak performance.  APICS Racine/Kenosha (RAKE) Chapter is here to create exciting possibilities for current and future supply chain leaders to deliver, innovate and impact our world.

With manufacturing playing a key role in the history of southeastern Wisconsin, it should come as no surprise that an organization dedicated to promoting education among manufacturing and distribution professionals would have a very active local chapter here. The RAKE chapter of APICS is committed to providing its Kenosha, Racine, Walworth, McHenry, and Lake County members with local educational opportunities, professional development events, and networking opportunities.

The local Racine/Kenosha chapter was founded in 1986 and is operated by an all-volunteer board of directors. In addition to providing review courses for APICS certification exams, the RAKE chapter also provides professional development meetings (PDM's), newsletters and other educational events. PDM's are dinner meetings held locally 5 or 6 times per year that include an after dinner speaker on a topic of interest to members. The local APICS activities are a great way increase knowledge and network with other local manufacturing, distribution, and service professionals. Certification courses, PDM's, and other activities start in September and run through May. Members and non-members alike are always welcome at local APICS events.  Come join us, we would like to see you at our next event.
