CIPS has secured a partnership agreement with CASME, the global membership network for corporate procurement, to provide continuing professional development hours to CIPS members who participate in CASME events.
CASME runs more than 175 events annually, aimed at bringing procurement professionals together to share knowledge and best practice, and publishes research and benchmarking reports for its global network of 10,000 members.
CIPS members who are corporate subscribers of CASME and participate in roundtable events and online mini-roundtables will be awarded CPD hours and a certificate towards CIPS recognition for learning and maintaining professional procurement knowledge and skills. Subscribers can log in to the CASME Resource Centre to download their Certificate of Participation after attending an event.
David Noble, group CEO, CIPS, said: “I am always extremely pleased when we are able to offer our members valuable research and resources, relevant to working in a global landscape, with our partners. CASME is a great addition to this portfolio of knowledge.
“CPD demonstrates that CIPS members are keeping up to date with the latest trends and topics currently shaping the profession.”
Jonathan Lyles, CEO, CASME, added: “This initiative will complement our strategy of working with prestigious professional bodies across the world.”
