Current Active Committees:
Programs: There are two main roles: Event Chair or Programs Committee. Event Chairs sign up to take ownership for 1-2 events from start to finish. These events are generally 3-4 hours long as either a facility tour, a networking event, or an educational event with a speaker or panel about a given topic. General programs committee members provide support to the event chairs by helping to identify speakers, venues, topics, administrative support, etc.
Membership: Membership & Hospitality Committee members provide support before, during, and after each event connecting with non-members and members to help build more engagement with the program. This includes folks focused on the registration aspect, handling the name badges and greeting guests when they first arrive.
Finance: The Finance committee is fairly small and mainly focused on handling payments, building and reporting on the budget, and following up on our sponsors’ engagement. Oftentimes, the “Treasurer-elect” will come from this committee.
Education: The Education team is focused on keeping our educators and students engaged, as well as facilitating our scholarship program. The focus is reaching out to the faculty and students to spread awareness of our scholarship as well as the benefits of participating in a professional organization – specifically CSCMP.
Marketing: The Communications Team maintains our website, e-mail marketing and any social promotion campaigns.
Young Professionals: The YP team develops programming throughout the year that is focused on professionals early in their career – those with different needs than experienced professionals. The content may be more focused toward building operational or career development skills as compared to higher level strategic skills or new/emerging content.
