Professional development is key to optimizing career opportunities in supply chain management. This means maintaining, improving and broadening your knowledge in the field of practice.

Life-long learning has become increasingly essential with the rapid introduction of new technologies, and advances in supply chain standards and practices. Whether the latest changes to procurement law or new strategies for negotiation, you need to keep current.


Professional Development Seminars will be of interest to those seeking to enhance their knowledge and stay in touch with leading practices in supply chain management. Seminars are eligible for professional maintenance credits for accredited members. Each two-day Seminar is eligible for 10 maintenance points.

Seminars may also be of interest to members and non-members alike where a specific topic addresses a professional development need. Members are eligible for discounted registration.

SCMA seminars with great instructors sometimes end up having to be cancelled due to low registration because people wait until the last minute to sign up. Seminars can only take place when they attract a minimum number of registrants. If minimum numbers are not reached two weeks prior to the scheduled date, seminars may be cancelled or postponed.

We are pleased to offer new seminars to provide you with new opportunities to update your professional knowledge.


Upcoming Seminars: 

* Seminars are based on a minimum number of registrants.  If minimum numbers are not reached 2 weeks prior to the commencement, seminars may be cancelled or postponed*
