Some people go above and beyond the requirements of their individual jobs and truly work to improve the supply chain profession as a whole. They may do this by guiding research, experimenting with new technology and management strategies, sharing best practices, and/or educating and mentoring others. Every year, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals recognizes one of these "supply chain heroes" with its Distinguished Service Award.
Recent recipients include Robert Martichenko, chief executive officer (CEO) of LeanCor Supply Chain Group; Mike Regan, chief of relationship development, TranzAct Technologies Inc.; Ann Drake, chairman and CEO of DSC Logistics; and AbrÃ© Pienaar, CEO of iPlan.
Do you know someone worthy of joining these dignitaries? If so, then nominate him or her now for the award. All submissions must be received by April 30, 2016.
Nominees will be judged on five criteria:
The 2016 award winner will be recognized at CSCMP's Annual Conference, scheduled for September 25-28, 2016, in Orlando, Florida, USA.

La Londe Best Paper Award, and the E. Grosvenor Plowman Award. More information about all of these recognitions is available here.
