- Person-to-person networking – enticing social events offering showcase opportunities for chapter supplier members and an opportunity to make new connections that can help you personally and professionally.
- Free CMP Study Groups, study resources, and access to members who have earned their CMM and can provide individual assistance to you too.
- Volunteer opportunities on small committees where you can make a difference and shape the future of our chapter. The more you give, the more you will get back. Volunteers spend as little as one hour per month and can even take on a larger commitment as a member of the Board of Directors.
All of these benefits add up to incredible results!
