Student Competition
The APICS competition was an amazing, challenging, and valuable learning experience. It provided a great opportunity for networking with students from other universities and with APICS professionals. It also provided the ability for us to take what we have learned, and apply it to a real-world problem.



Hello and welcome to the Southwest District of APICS.

APICS Southwest District represents the members and customers of Southern California, Arizona, Southern Nevada, and Baja and Sonora Mexico. We have an active membership that includes over 4500 individuals and companies supporting APICS's vision of life long learning for lifetime success.

Each of the Southwest District's 15 Chapters allow members to hear real life success stories of production and inventory improvements through professional development meetings, workshops and seminars, and CPIM and CIRM certification preparation.

We at the Southwest District are working diligently to assist the local chapters with information, training, education products that will assist you and your company in the coming months and years. Your local Chapter professionals can provide classes, networking opportunity, in-house training and seminars to target and support the continuous improvement process that many of us are undertaking.

The Southwest District Staff is ready and able to assist you with any questions or suggestions that you might have as well as direct your inquiries to your local Chapter for more personalized service. Please give us a call or email to let us know how we're doing or how we may better serve your needs.
