Supply Chain Management Council
About The Council
The Supply Chain Management Council seeks to connect, challenge, and energize its members to achieve the following vision: to be the Integrated Supply Chain Management hub enhancing the competitiveness of West Michigan companies.
From that vision comes the council’s mission to collaborate with top ISCM leaders to offer resources to area organizations and our members to achieve Supply Chain Management excellence.
The Supply Chain Management Council has established a strategic plan to achieve the following objectives:
- Provide a collaborative forum and networking opportunities leading to personal growth for Council members and area professionals.
- Leverage collective knowledge, capabilities, and ability to influence to enhance process performance and profitability of Council member companies.
- Play a lead role in advancing regional knowledge of the supply chain management with a focus on furthering economic development in West Michigan.
As part of a trust group of leaders, members are the voice of supply chain in West Michigan and solve common challenges by providing actionable insights on new developments. The Council provides a platform to discuss issues not unique to an individual business and offer best practice learning through tours, discussion, and connections to educational institutional partners; and produces the popular Supply Chain Conference and Commodity Trends Outlook events. Membership in the Supply Chain Management Council provides an opportunity to create new collaborations with other supply chain professionals.
The Council partners with
APICS, CSCMP, and ISM frequently. To learn more, download our brochure.
