Some of you may or may not know about the CIPS Congress which is a body that sits under the CIPS Board of Trustees in the UK. The Congress meet regularly on an annual basis to discuss various matters from professionalism in the procurement profession, membership, to curriculum changes, etc. I represent the Africa Students which i do quite proudly even as i share my CIPS journey with you all through my blog. I really love hearing from all of you especially because I know the journey is tough but rest assured very doable.
This February among other Africa Congress members, I am having a meeting in Nairobi with Nikki Bell, current CIPS Congress Chair and Andrew Coulcher, CIPS Group Membership & Knowledge Director – i would love you guys to share with me any concerns, questions, feedback, about the current CIPS system which i will share with them. Also your experiences what you like what you don’t like. I may not bring you feedback immediately but I assure you I will relay each of your messages. A current trend we notice a lot of people drop off their membership once they are done with their qualifications, which is the worst thing to do especially when you need to grow your networks constantly.
Drop me a line on my contact me page or comment here and i will be sure to come back to you with their responses and comments.
