Membership Benefits

 

My CSCMP journey started just about 2 years ago, I had actually never heard of CSCMP, but at the recommendation of my CEO, I started making connections in the CSCMP community and started attending my first programs and through that, I quickly decided I didn’t just want to be a part of another group where I attended events and did some networking, I decided I wanted to roll my sleeves up and get involved in the community. It’s a no-brainer, you’ve got to join CSCMP.
