PMAC launches Supply Chain Management Professional
The SCMP replaces the Certified Professional Purchaser (C.P.P.) designation.
Accredited members of PMAC across the country are now being advised to begin using the SCMP designation, subject to the status of any applicable legislation in their respective jurisdictions.
PMAC board chair, Leah Bach, said: “The roles of PMAC members have expanded greatly and we needed a new designation that is reflective of this shift to a profession that is more strategic and that encompasses the full spectrum of supply chain management.
“As supply chain management emerges as the most significant determinant of competitive advantage, the new designation will raise awareness, understanding and recognition of the expertise that an SCMP contributes to the success of any organization,” added Bach.
All current CPPs will receive the SCMP.
Current and future candidates enrolled in the Strategic Supply Chain Management Leadership Program (SSCMLP) that leads to professional accreditation will also receive the SCMP designation upon successful completion of the program.
