President’s Message

Welcome to CSCMP-NYC! 

This is your NYC metro source for professional development and networking with industry peers. Your CSCMP-NYC roundtable is a vital connection to increasing customers, and business associates and your knowledge of the industry. Almost 100 roundtables around the world serve to enhance your career and advance your profession at the local level.

As your president, I’m very excited about 2012-13, and look forward to meeting more of our members, welcoming new members, and collaborating with all stakeholders on value-add opportunities.

The New York City Roundtable of CSCMP is deeply involved in the greater supply chain & logistics community, and our board represents a cross-section of industries and functions.  As a roundtable, CSCMP-NYC focuses on connecting membership with opportunities to enhance their supply chain career development. We do this in two major ways: 

1.     Professional Development

From September through May, we organize membership (non-members are of course welcome) events focusing on the latest industry trends and issues.  We seek out content to meet the interests of all facets of the supply chain, from procurement to reverse logistics, and everything in between. Program Chairperson, Erik Holck, welcomes all ideas for future program ideas. All of our member events (tours or panel discussions) count as 1 Continuing Education Credit for those enrolled in CSCMP’s SC Pro Certification Program. 

2.     Fostering New Supply Chain Talent

Each year, our Sponsors enable us to continue to offer our Rhoda Isaacs Scholarship Program, currently led by Past President, Suzanne Richer. In 2012-13 we plan to award a monetary scholarship in addition to sponsoring a student to attend the CSCMP Annual Global Conference. Applicants must have a current CSCMP Student Membership (extremely affordable and attainable).  As a member of CSCMP’s national Young Professionals Committee, I am pround to say that CSCMP recognizes the specific needs of post grads who have recently landed in the supply chain workforce and those post grads looking to join it. Membership for those 30 and under is heavily discounted. Also, for the first time ever, the 2012 Annual Conference will feature a track specifically designed for the interests and needs of Young Professionals.


We welcome fellow supply chain practitioners to attend our meetings, join CSCMP, and even sponsor Roundtable events – one of the keys to driving our stewardship goals, and a great way to reach potential customers and clients. Our sponsorship program Chair is Roundtable veteran Ray Kuvonuk.

Please join us at one of our Upcoming Events – a great opportunity to network with fellow accomplished supply chain professionals.  Whether you’re looking to benchmark with peers, find supply chain talent, land your next big client, or learn about an interesting topic – this is the place for you.

Warm Regards,

Suzanne Richer, President
CSCMP- NYC Roundtable
