APICS Member Advocacy

45 The advocacy campaign includes these components: – Introduction of new e-newsletters for members and executives that cover the media and government reports and put them in context for the profession. – Increased communications about relevant member benefits, such as extended unemployment benefits and Career Center job postings. – Enhanced APICS magazine editorial coverage of the economy – Continued distribution of economy related APICS content to employers. – Development of a public relations plan and media calendar.
