Toledo Chapter

About APICS Toledo

The Toledo Chapter is the local APICS group for Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan and supports the APICS Vission and Mission by providing education classes and promoting the exchange of ideas and learning from others through regular meetings around the Toledo area.

Chapter History

APICS Toledo is one of the older APICS chapters. APICS began in Cleveland in 1957 and the Toledo chapter received its charter on November 13, 1962. Throughout the years the chapter has alternately grown and struggled but today it continues to be a very strong and viable chapter with much to offer to its members and to all operations management and supply chain management professionals in the area.

In June 2015 the chapter had over 180 Professional and Young Professional members from over 45 area companies. There are also 2 affiliated student chapters, Bowling Green State University and The University of Toledo, with over 80 student members between the two schools.

The chapter remains strong due to the hard work accomplished by members who recognize the value of APICS and the Toledo chapter.

APICS Chapter Benchmarking and Review Process (CBAR)

APICS introduced CBAR in Chapter Year 2005 – 2006. With this program each chapter is required to perform an annual self evaluation to ensure it meets minimum performance standards set by APICS. Chapters achieving better than minimum standards can receive Bronze, Silver or Gold awards. The aim of CBAR is to provide chapters with metrics and tools for measurement to permit the Chapter Board to identify chapter strengths and weaknesses and using these results modify their activities to better serve chapter members and others who may use the chapter’s services.
