UW-Eau Claire APICS Chapter Recognized for Excellence
The Indianhead Professional Chapter of APICS—The Association for Operations Management, will present the Platinum Circle Award and a check for $275 to the UW-Eau Claire student chapter of APICS at its first meeting on Wednesday, September 22, at 5 pm in Schneider Hall, Room 203.
The Platinum Circle Award is the most prestigious award an APICS student chapter can receive, according to Theresa Wells, student chapter adviser.
The Platinum Circle Award demonstrates a student chapter’s dedication to providing exemplary services and professional development opportunities to its members in five critical areas: administration, education, programs, membership and public relations. To earn the Platinum Circle Award, a student chapter must receive a Gold Circle award for five consecutive years.
