 Astolf Witte Accepted in IDP

Please join us in congratulating Astolf for being accepted as a "CPIM Lead Instructor" in the APICS Instructor Development Program (IDP).

Lead Instructors have not only mastered the CPIM material, but have demonstrated they can teach it. Requirements to be a Lead Instructor include:

  • Maintain own CPIM certification.
  • Maintain endorsement by the Chapter.
  • Instruct a minimum of 75 hours "stand and deliver" experience.
  • Instruct any 3 CPIM courses during 5 year cycle.
  • Participate in Learning Dynamics for Instructors or Applied Instructor Skills during the 5 year cycle.
  • Mentor an Associate or Lead Instructor.
  • Be mentored by a Lead or Master Instructor.

As you can see, this is a very rigorous program and takes a special individual to achieve the level of knowledge personally and be willing to share that knowledge with others.

Congratulations Astolf!

Chapter Business

Working under the new Channel Partner Agreement, all APICS Chapters are required to have By-laws that cover Chapter operations. In fulfilling with that requirement, our Board of Directors have drafted the following document:
