The Supply Chain Management practice area provides a highly interactive forum for member companies to gain insights from and discuss challenges with supply chain experts in break-outs, member company presentations and case studies.

To better serve our members, the Supply Chain Management practice area is split into two groups. More information about each Peer Group, including specific dates and meeting assets, can be found through the following links:
