Welcome to the APICS Roanoke Regional Chapter

Welcome to the APICS Roanoke Regional Chapter

Incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia on July 6th 2006, APICS Roanoke is the premier source of supply chain education in the New River Valley and Western Virginia. Our mission is to enhance the skills and professionalism of local business communities, academia, and the general public by providing operations management education.

Our student chapter, grown from our partnerships with Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and other area educational institutions, provide guidance and encouragement for tomorrow’s leaders who wish to embrace operations management as a career.

Our enriching course offerings, events, and professional development opportunities cover a wide range of operational topics that create a valuable opportunity for professionals to grow and network with others in their field.

We are currently partnered with the Radford/Roanoke American Society for Quality (ASQ) section to host joint events, professional development meetings, and leadership opportunities for our student chapter.
