One of our main goals at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) is to really help supply chain professionals throughout the entire trajectory of their careers. That’s why to kick of the new year, we are launching two exciting new initiatives that reach out to people at the opposite ends of their career journey.
The first is a new peer-to-peer member program targeting senior-level executives. The CSCMP Executive Inner Circle (EIC) is an invitation-only experience, exclusive to CSCMP practitioner (shipper) executive members. In this carefully tailored forum, EIC members will meet in exclusive live forums for discussions with other high-level supply chain executives. With this new program, we are seeking to provide executive members with exceptional learning experiences in an interactive environment with sought-after experts and resources.
This unique experience allows executives to exchange ideas with trusted supply chain colleagues as we work together to push forward our discipline, engage in leader-to-leader critical decision-making, and enable strategic thought. You will want to be “in the room” as we launch this next-level senior leadership peer-to-peer program.
Senior supply chain practitioner executives—vice president and higher—are invited to reach out to CSCMP at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about the EIC.
In addition to the EIC, CSCMP has also launched a new jobs initiative for high school students. Launched in February, this new Training-to-Jobs (T2J) Initiative was developed by the CSCMP Center for the Advancement in Talent & Training (CATT), a CSCMP Center of Excellence. CATT combines career training and pathways for all with accessible continuing education and professional development opportunities. The Center will provide thoughtfully cultivated, crafted, and supported training experiences that respect and serve both future employees and their employers.
As you can see, CSCMP is continuing to preserve and expand the reach of the learning experience it delivers, creating an environment that can be trusted to deliver exactly what you have come to expect from the association.
So cheers to a new year as we celebrate CSCMP’s 60th anniversary with steadfast commitment to expanding the reach of our vision! With these new programs, we hope to further connect supply chain professionals in order to collaborate, improve supply chain leadership skills, and support the full life cycle and development of our members’ careers. In addition to our new career development programs, we will continue to identify and conduct research that adds to the knowledge base of supply chain theory and practice and create awareness of the significance of global supply chains to business and the global economy. No other association is better positioned to serve the supply chain profession today than CSCMP.
