    The CIPS Zambia branch has been in existence since the seventies. The first branch committee was established in Luanshya, comprising expatriate staff from Roan Selection Trustee (RST). Among the first executive committee members was our current Chief Examiner at the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS) UK, Professor David Jessop who began his procurement career in Zambia. The branch could not stand the taste of time because expatriates kept leaving the country each time their contracts ended. 

    It was until 1995 when Zambian professionals held a revival meeting at Masiye Motel in Kabwe where a first indigenous Executive Committee ushered in led by Jones J. Kalyongwe. From that time, the branch has held Annual General Meetings (AGMs).
