Supply chain in the spotlight

More than 40 million Americans have filed for first-time unemployment benefits since the coronavirus pandemic forced the U.S. economy to shut down in March—representing nearly 20% of the U.S. labor force. The COVID-19 pandemic has put supply chain in the spotlight as people now realize the crucial role it plays in maintaining the flow of goods and services. Prior to COVID-19, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that demand for supply chain professionals exceeded supply by a ratio of six to one. As the workforce is reshaped by this pandemic, the need for supply chain professionals will only continue to grow.

ASCM Phoenix Forum Changes

Supply chain professionals learn and engage differently today. To better meet the changing needs of our members we have decided to adapt the ASCM North American chapter structure.  These changes will enable ASCM and our partners to deliver superior experiences for members and customers that are aligned with our rapidly shifting business environment. As part of our new program, which begins January 1, 2021, members can choose to belong to ASCM Chapters and ASCM Forums. 

Build your capability, your network and your career by joining a local ASCM Chapter or Forum. ASCM’s outstanding volunteer partner community will enhance your member experience and professional development through local training, networking and events. 

Let the numbers do the talking

In June, ASCM released the results of our 2020 Supply Chain Salary and Career Report. The data collected from over 2,400 U.S supply chain professionals shows that in addition to offering high salaries and good benefits, a career in supply chain offers job fulfillment, opportunities for advancement and a variety of work.
