Student Business Club Wins Fourth APICS Gold Award

The Assumption College student chapter of APICS has received its fourth consecutive Gold Award from The Association for Operations Management, an international professional organization, formerly known as the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS). The Outstanding Chapter Management Award was presented to the students by Robert Manning, a member of the Worcester County APICS Chapter's board of directors.

Assumption's APICS student chapter, known as the Business Club on campus, is an independent organization whose members participate in professional development meetings hosted by the Worcester County Chapter of APICS, its parent chapter. The Worcester County APICS chapter provides the student group with educational and financial support.

"Our student chapter is very active and its members have been involved in the management and promotion of the chapter's activities – submitting papers to writing competitions, inviting speakers and going on (manufacturing) plant tours, among other activities" said professor of business studies Saeed Mohaghegh, who co-founded the student chapter at Assumption in 1984 and serves as its faculty adviser. "The student members have received many APICS awards and scholarships for their work over the past 25 years, including two bronze and one silver award, as well as the four gold awards. I think the great student officers, strong support from our parent chapter, and my guidance and support since the chapter was established, have all contributed to our success."
