Unemployed Membership Extension Program

If you are an unemployed APICS member whose membership is coming up for renewal, you are unemployed and you are actively seeking work within the production and inventory management field, you may apply for an extension of membership benefits through the Unemployed Membership Extension Program.

This program enables members seeking employment within the production and inventory management industry to extend their membership for six months free of charge*. If you meet this criterion and are interested in applying for an extension of membership benefits due to unemployment, download an application or contact APICS Customer Support.


  • Members MUST apply for this benefit before their membership expires and provide for enough time to complete the process.

  • Members may apply for this extension up to three times for coverage over an 18 month period.

  • Members apply for the extension through their local chapter, which must approve the request and waive chapter dues.

  • Members approved for this waiver will receive an electronic membership for the duration of the waiver, which entitles you to electronic communication of all member benefit materials
