The vital role being played by SAPICS, The Professional Body for Supply Chain Management, in skills development in Africa was recognised at the recent APICS Regional Learning Partner Awards in the United States.

This inaugural event was hosted by ASCM (The Association for Supply Chain Management), which represents a vast global network of supply chain professionals. “We are honoured to have been named the Outstanding Channel Partner for the Middle East and Africa (MEA),” comments SAPICS chief operating officer Jenny Froome.

“The ASCM Global Channel & Alliances team recognised the important role that SAPICS is playing in building a community of educated supply chain professionals in Africa, as well as our contribution to advancing ASCM and the APICS body of knowledge and cultivating supply chain talent in our part of the world. SAPICS was commended for our commitment to quality, professionalism and continuous improvement, and for our success in developing individuals and organisations in the supply chain profession through educational programmes, conferences and events,” she expands.

“Supply chain proficiency and competence is a catalyst for economic growth. There has never been a greater need for qualified, certified, professionally designated and ethically accountable supply chain professionals than there is in Africa today. SAPICS is proud to be at the forefront of the drive to develop and professionalise supply chain management, and delighted to have our achievements recognised by ASCM,” Froome concludes.
