CSCMP Mission & Goals

To lead the evolving supply chain management profession by developing, advancing, and disseminating supply chain knowledge and research.

  • Provide opportunities for supply chain professionals to communicate in order to develop and improve their supply chain management skills

  • An organization that engages in matters where various members have contrary interests
  • An organization that endorses, sanctions, or discourages supply chain-related legislation, products, or services
