Are you interested in learning more about the certifications and endorsements you can obtain through ASCM? Have you heard acronyms like CSCP or CPIM and wondered to yourself, "What's the difference?" Then join us for this first ever hybrid in-person and online event we will dig into those topics with our very own Michiana chapter resident educator, Doug Canter. In-person attendees can rest assured we will be taking every precaution to maintain safe distance, and of course as usual we will be providing dinner. Online attendees will receive a Zoom link prior to the meeting to which they can connect and interact on the day of the event. We've never done this before, so bear with us as we find our footing with the format!
