APICS Greater Detroit is proud to have the following Student Chapter affiliated with our chapter.
APICS Student Chapter Eastern Michigan University
The Student Chapter Management Program is designed as a management tool for student chapters that are seeking to improve their processes, products, and services. It encourages the operation of a well-managed chapter that is properly balanced and effective in meeting its student member needs.
Chapter management requires attention to five categories: administration, education, programs, membership, and public relations. Activities within each category provide educational opportunities and enhance a chapter's capabilities.
The second half of the program is designed to provide recognition for the chapters efforts. While participation in the recognition portion of the program is optional, it is strongly encouraged by APICS, districts, and chapters. Records show that participating student chapters have a strong membership base and significant support from their professional (parent) chapter and faculty advisor(s).
Participation in this program requires evidence of performance of measurable tasks in the five chapter management categories. The evaluation conducted by the Professional (parent) chapter enhances its relationship with the student chapter while the resulting documentation creates a roadmap for faculty advisors and future student chapter leaders.
