It's not that the Oak Brook, Ill.-based association of logistics and supply-chain management professionals is closing its doors. Instead, the Council of Logistics Management (CLM) is changing its name "to meet the changing needs of our members and our profession," explains Elijah Ray, 2003-2004 CLM president. "People in our profession now have an expanded and more critical role within our companies than we did 10 or even five years ago. . . . Our roles have evolved, which is why CLM is changing to reflect what's happening in the supply chain." CLM will be known as the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) effective Jan. 1, 2005. The new organization will emphasize the entire supply chain, explains CLM, incorporating not only logistics, but also procurement, manufacturing operations and sales and marketing functions. Additional details around CLM's evolution will be discussed during its annual conference slated Oct. 3-6 in Philadelphia.
