The Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM) and the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) are collaborating to bring expanded resources for companies that are looking to optimize their supply chains.
"With global multi-tiered supply chains becoming increasingly complex, companies are more challenged than ever to keep up with the latest research and thought leadership available," says ASCM CEO Abe Eshkenazi , CSCP, CPA, CAE. "This partnership with SCMA recognizes their unique Canadian position and is exemplary of our commitment to build and grow a global network of alliances and collaborations that ultimately make it easier for organizations to find the resources they need to invest in their supply chains."
The collaboration will enable distribution of each other's product offerings, offering development of joint training programs for Global 2000 and Fortune 1000 companies, participation and establishment of joint events, and combined thought leadership and publications.
"We are working hard to elevate our profession as a critical driver of Canada's economy, supporting the community with the latest knowledge to enable Canadian supply chain professionals to be global leaders," said SCMA President and CEO Christian Buhagiar . "Partnering with ASCM is indicative of our goal to build constructive and collaborative relationships that will help us to shape Canada's supply chain workplace of the future and to lead supply chain innovation."
