Every year the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) hosts the Edge Conference, which brings together future supply chain leaders with current supply chain professionals. This year, The Mike Ilitch School of Business’ own Zachariah Abdulnour will be present, thanks to a scholarship he received from CSCMP.

CSCMP is a national organization of supply chain professionals that holds local and national round tables and conferences throughout the year to educate, certify and offer networking opportunities to its members. This year, the Edge Conference will be held in Kissimmee, Florida.

A senior double majoring in global supply chain management and information systems management, Abdulnour has previously attended local supply chain management conferences, but he will now have the opportunity to network on a national level.

“They are one of the biggest organizations for supply chain professionals outside of the school systems, and they do a lot of networking events,” explains Abdulnour. “Their local chapter connected me with some of the leaders and they have a conference every year where they bring in the future leaders as they call them, to come out and learn about the organization, meet professionals and get involved.”

The conference isn’t until the first week of October, but Abdulnour is greatly looking forward to the opportunities it will provide. He plans on sharing the wealth of connections he will make at this conference with his classmates and organizations as well.   

“Being the president of the Global Supply Chain Management Association at Mike Ilitch School of Business, we hold a lot of events in the supply chain area, both within and outside of automotive. I enjoy being able to network with the connections I have made at these conferences, while also bringing them in to help support Wayne State students as well.”
