Lombard, Illinois USA (March 4, 2013)–The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) announced its inaugural Young Professionals Emerging Leader Award, created to offer up-and-coming leaders in the supply chain management (SCM) field an opportunity to be recognized by their mentors or established leaders. The award recognizes active CSCMP members age 30 or under for their contributions to the industry.

Summaries should describe specific aspects of the nominees’ business and professional experiences, including detailed examples. Submissions must also include one letter of recommendation written by an individual who is involved in the SCM discipline. Letters written by current members of CSCMP’s board of directors are not admissible.
The award recipient will be recognized at CSCMP’s 2013 Annual Global Conference, October 20-23, in Denver, Colorado, and will be invited to speak in a Young Professionals’ educational session at the event.
