Group also pledges share of proceeds to Wounded Warrior Project.
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) said today it will offer active, retired, and civilian U.S. military personnel discounted registration rates to its annual global conference, scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 in Atlanta.
CSCMP said 10 percent of the proceeds from military registrations would go to the "Wounded Warrior Project," a program aimed at raising awareness of and enlisting the public's support for the needs of injured service members, to help them to assist one another, and to provide programs and services to meet their needs.
"Our conference program offers an opportunity for leaders of the largest supply chain in the world—the U.S. military—to exchange ideas and share their expertise with commercial practitioners on meeting expanding customer requirements in a rapidly evolving world," said Rick Blasgen, CSCMP president and chief executive officer, in a statement.
"Over the past five years, there has been a steady increase in the number of military professionals attending our conference," added Blasgen. "This trend reflects the depth and relevance that our conference program offers to military supply chain officers and civilians alike."
