IBF chapters bring together local forecasting, demand planning and S&OP professionals to exchange knowledge, network and advance the field. Chapter meetings are hosted periodically with expert speakers sharing insight into the latest topics, techniques and developments.
Benefits of Becoming an IBF Chapter Member:
Start Your Own Chapter By Hosting A Meetup
The best way to start your own Chapter is to host a Meetup. To host a Meetup, all you need to do is to provide company meeting space at your office or another location and recommend a speaker - either yourself and/or a colleague at the company. Companies typically use their own office space, making Meetups low cost and easy to arrange. IBF will reach out to its vast network and bring local professionals to the event, whichever country you are in.
