It’s an opportunity for you to be recognized by your industry and peers for your outstanding experience, professionalism, and dedication.

We do not award the Fellow status lightly. It recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of Commercial and Contract Management and in many cases personal support of the association and its vision and mission in driving improvement in the quality and integrity of trading relationships.
