Sponsorship is a pivotal part of CSCMP. The money raised from our sponsor’s benefits our organization in the following ways:
Benefits for our Premium members: CSCMP's premium members are some of the most active members of the organization with high levels of event attendance. Through sponsorship, we are able to provide these members with business cards and professional photos for networking and career opportunities.
Hosting professional development events: Each semester, CSCMP hosts a multitude of professional development events. These include networking sessions with our sponsors, Excel workshops, and presentations on various aspects of professional development. After the presentations, we choose to provide food and other considerations at these events for our members.
Visiting corporations in the Supply Chain field: CSCMP takes the opportunity to expose our members to the 'real world' via educational trips to supply chain facilities, distribution centers and corporate headquarters. The knowledge gained from these trips prove to be very beneficial to our future Supply Chain professionals. Sponsorship will help fund transportation costs associated with the trips.
Attending conferences: Every year, CSCMP selects a few of its members to attend the National Conference. This allows for members to network with industry professionals and experience a professional conference early in their careers. While the costs of traveling and attending these conferences can be steep, the experience gained is extremely rewarding.
Covering miscellaneous costs: CSCMP, like any other organization, bears miscellaneous costs. These expenses include the creation of flyers, postage expenses, advertisements, and t-shirts for our members.
