Membership Extensions for Unemployed and Military Reservists

Unemployed? Extend your Membership Privileges!

If you are an unemployed APICS member whose membership is coming up for renewal 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.

Los Angeles Chapter members can apply for the extension through the Los Angeles Chapter. The extension benefit includes the Chapter Dues waiver. Chapter members must participate in the following job-seeking activities in order for the Chapter to approve the waiver:
1) submit a resume to the Chapter resume bank per requirements;
2) view job postings on the District Job bank and apply for at least 1 posted job (waived if no CA jobs are posted), and
3) attend a minimum of one Professional Development Meeting for networking during the two months prior to membership expiration.

Please note: Membership extension benefits are signed at the Professional Development Meetings only after successful completion of 1&2. Members approved for this waiver will receive electronic membership for the duration of the waiver, which entitles you to electronic communication of all member benefit materials.

Members may apply for this extension up to three times for coverage over an 18 month period. Members must complete all three activities per the above requirements for a Chapter extension approval.

Are you a Military Reservist called to Active Duty? Extend your Membership Privileges!

If you are an APICS member who has been called to active duty to serve in our armed forces, you may apply for an extension of membership benefits through the Military Extension Benefit Program.

APICS Professional Members can request an extension of benefits due to activation of reserve commitments. Activated Military personnel may receive a no-cost six-month extension of benefits. The APICS Association will determine the length and timing of the extension and will post the benefit requirements to the Association website. For the current membership extension program, activated military reservists can extend their membership for six months free of charge but may apply for this extension one time.

Los Angeles Chapter members can apply for the military reservist extension benefit through the Los Angeles Chapter. The extension benefit includes the Chapter Dues waiver. The Chapter member is responsible for ensuring completion all required forms and submitting the forms to the Association. To qualify for the Chapter Dues waiver, the member must submit the request to the President and:

1. Provide proof of reserve duty, such as activation letter.
2. Agree to public recognition of the Member’s military reserve duty status (i.e. posting to Chapter website, blast e-mail, and/or newsletter article).
