ASCI is very conscious of the fact that most professionals are time poor and are working hard to maintain work/life balance. With this in mid we have worked hard to ensure our Professional Development events are made up of both digital and physical offerings.

Keeping across topical issues surrounding the supply chain is a must for any supply chain professional wanting to develop their career. To aid in this, ASCI continuously works with industry thought leaders and experts to provide regular webinars that address the industries biggest topics.
Networking Events and Site Visits
Sometimes it just pays to rub shoulders with others in the industry. Throughout the year ASCI works closely with our State Chapters and Partners to bring together fun and informative networking events. These events are a great way to discuss issues and interests and learn how others in the indusry are doing things.
ASCI also works closely with the industry to pull together a range of site visits throughout the year. Sometimes these are standalone visits, othertimes they may be coupled with a networking event. Either way they are alway interesting and always popular.
