A career in Supply Chain and Logistics in Australia, now more than ever, knows no limits. With the right knowledge, attitude and skills, Supply Chain and Logistics professionals and practitioners have no career ceiling. However, it is competitive out there. More and more employers rightly expect professionalism. Professions have a number of common attributes. These include a commitment to ongoing education, compliance with a code of conduct, performance consistent with a generally agreed body of knowledge or set of rules and Membership of a professional body.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) is Australia’s largest association for Supply Chain and Logistics professionals and practitioners. We have over 3,300 members and industry contacts. The SCLAA has the proven history, governance framework, established representation, value for money and strategic reach to make it the right choice for you. We have hard working Committees in ACT / Southern NSW, New South Wales, Victoria/ Tasmania, South Australia / NT, Queensland and Western Australia each led by Division (State) President. We aim to hold events monthly in each Division/State/Territory. Each division elects a committee member to form a National Board and the National Board then elects a Chairman. No other Supply Chain and Logistics Industry Association in Australia has the depth and coverage of the SCLAA. If you have any event ideas or suggestions, please contact us.
