Exciting News: AST&L and APICS to Merge!
APICS and American Society of Transportation and Logistics (AST&L) announced today that the boards of directors of both organizations have approved an agreement under which AST&L will merge with APICS upon ratification by an AST&L member vote. Together, APICS and AST&L will offer unmatched content and subject matter expertise that will enable individuals and organizations to meet key supply chain and logistics challenges.
It is very important to vote. We need 10 percent of AST&L’s members to participate in the vote for a quorum. I encourage you to read the press release, FAQs, AST&L Board Resolution, Plan of Merger, Articles of Merger, APICS’s Articles of Incorporation, and APICS’s Bylaws on the merger page of the AST&L website to familiarize yourself with the details so you’ll be ready to cast your electronic ballot. Voting will begin on June 1 and end on June 15. Please look for an email that will include a link to the ballot and additional information about your member benefits.
