Birmingham and Coventry Branch, UK
What are the reasons that you choose to volunteer for CIPS?
Firstly I am passionate about the procurement profession and the value good procurement practice can deliver to organisations. CIPS is the largest Procurement professional organisation globally with over 70,000 members, and has made a significant impact on the progress and recognition of the profession. Volunteering with CIPS for the past 10 years has provided me with a fantastic network of connections, at the differing ends of the spectrum, from students to seasoned CPOs. There is also a sense of satisfaction working with fantastic branch volunteers, with a similar interest and passion of giving back to the profession. Most of us have achieved our procurement qualification through CIPS.
