Member Dues Increase

To provide products and services that continue to set the industry standard and support valued members, APICS has recognized the need to increase member dues for the first time in almost 10 years.

Effective September 1, 2017, annual dues will increase about 10% for each membership category. Current members will receive notice of the dues increase in their renewal notices beginning May 1, 2017
