There are a number of seats open for Africa representation at Congress. If your membership is up to date you have probably received the email this week. All I would say is this, if you are passionate about the procurement profession and you are interested in seeing CIPS get even bigger & better in Africa then you should put yourself up for nomination.
The Congress roles are all volunteer so before you ask you should know it is a volunteer role. That said however, there are a tonne of other benefits once you get in. These Congress seats exist to help address the very different opportunities and challenges across the countries in Africa.
If you didn’t get the email but this somehow just peaked your interest you can get more information by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
