Many organisations recognise the need to keep up with this pace of change and the significant contribution excellent procurement and supply chain practice can bring. CIPS believed that the time is right to call for the profession to self-regulate by licensing its professionals. CIPS views MCIPS as the ‘professional licence’ and Chartered Status as the ‘advanced professional licence’. Come along to find out about the reasons why CIPS has introduced Chartered Status and how you can apply for it. You will aslo be able to find out more about what CIPS can do to support you at every stage in your career.
