The Purchasing Management Association of Canada is to merge with the Supply Chain & Logistics Association Canada, to become the Supply Chain Management Association.
The amalgamation, which is subject to the approval of both associations’ memberships, would cement SCMA’s position as the preeminent association for Canadian supply chain professionals.
PMAC and SCL will hold votes at their Annual General Meetings, both to be held on the 12th of June, 2013 in Ottawa and Toronto respectively.
“It’s a natural evolution,” said PMAC board chair Mike Whelan. “As organisations, our strengths complement each other; by combining them we can offer supply chain professionals in all disciplines the very best opportunities for professional development, networking, and employment.”
