Have fun, make new friends, and change the world
Locally Organized, Internationally connected
Unlike other groups, we do not push "chapters" when a functioning organization exists. We encourage current supply chain oriented chapters/organizations to join the SCNext to share with each other best practices, experiences, events and resources. If you are a member of the CSCMP, APICS, ISCEA, ISM, or any University organization around the world join the SCNext and represent your group. This is not an advertising platform for supply chain certification providers. It is a platform for developing leaders in the supply chain industry and connecting those leaders with companies around the world.
What we mean by a member run organization
The only goal of the SCNext leadership is to steer the organization in the right direction. How fast it goes there are the members responsibilities. We reward each member's contribution in a number of ways.
On our own social network "The SCNexus", the more active a member is, the greater the reward. W e define active as being able to contribute to member learning, reply to member queries, post videos about your supply chain experiences, interviews with experts, case study examples and stir online activity. The more you share the more you gain.
If you have something in mind, something radical which will serve our vision, we want to hear from you. Now, the best part- If it's selected, the idea/event will be your baby. We will provide all resources required for setup but the challenge will be for you to plan, organize and execute. Needless to say, added benefits of networking, prizes and conferences come along the way for such active members.
A unique point system keeps track of each members SCore and periodically rewards are sent out to the most active members.(It could be anything from a Supply Chain conference pass, opportunity of a power lunch and networking event with our corporate partners or lets have some fun- a return ticket for a wonderful holiday package)
