Know someone who has made an exceptional contribution to the field of supply chain management? If so, you might consider nominating him or her for the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) 2010 Distinguished Service Award.
The award—the highest honor for individual achievement in supply chain management—recognizes individuals for their contribution to the profession. Nominees are evaluated against five criteria:
A brief sampling of past winners is a veritable "Who's Who" of supply chain stars: Joel L. Sutherland of Lehigh University's Center for Value Chain Research; Arthur Mesher, CEO, Descartes Systems Group; H. Lee Scott Jr., Chairman, Wal-Mart Corp.; Georgia Tech's Dr. C. John Langley; our own "Basic Training" columnist Kenneth B. Ackerman (1977), then chairman of Distribution Centers Inc.; and "Fast Lane" columnist Cliff Lynch (1980), who was vice president of distribution for the Quaker Oats Co. at the time.
Details of the nomination and award process, along with a complete list of winners, are available at CSCMP's Web site. The deadline is April 30. Contact Sue Paulson at (630) 645-3469 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
