Company Coordinators


 2017 Program Year


The Company Coordinator is an individual dedicated to the professional and educational philosophies of APICS and represents the educational and certification needs of the employees within his or her company.

Company Coordinators act as liaisons between the Chapter Board of Directors and fellow employees at their companies.  They disseminate meeting information, coordinate registration for programs and certification, make membership applications available and help their organization derive maximum benefit from its APICS activities. 


The program is voluntary and time requirements will vary depending on the size of your organization.  Most Company Coordinators probably invest about one hour per month coordinating and dispersing information within their organization.


  • APICS Membership in good standing with APICS and the Providence Chapter

  • Attend at least TWO (2) Chapter Professional Development Meetings (PDMs) each fiscal year
