Each year the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) acknowledges and honors a select group of individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions throughout the supply chain management industry. It’s a way for the association to highlight the significant achievements of distinguished supply chain professionals, emerging leaders, innovators, and individuals/organizations dedicated to pursuing positive social, environmental, and economic initiatives.
If you would like to submit a nomination, it’s not too late. Here’s a sampling of awards with open nomination periods:
