People to See and Places to go… NOT Now!


We are excited to welcome you to the New Mexico ASCM Forum.

As an ASCM Forum, we are creating a supportive local community for supply chain professionals, to connect with friends, peers and mentors; learn new skills; and create a better world through supply chain across the span of their careers. Should you have training or CPIM, CSCP, and CLTD certification needs, we will work with you and our ASCM Chapter partners or ASCM directly to fulfill your needs.

We’re always on the lookout for members who want to engage in important supply chain discussions and the greater supply chain community. If positioning yourself as a thought leader in supply chain is of interest to you, let’s connect soon! I can be reached at

Again, we’re excited to have you as part of our community. We look forward to supporting you for years to come.

Topic: 5 Practical Tips for Reducing Stress and Increasing Happiness

Speaker: Richard Jones


We need to make 2021 a good year.  No one is going to do it for us. We cannot sit around waiting for something good to happen any longer!  Let’s start by making ourselves feel better. Richard will focus on a baseline understanding of positive psychology and its application to stress reduction, employee resilience, and emotional well-being.  We will focus on the scientific study of “happiness” and the common factors that contribute to happiness. We will also provide 5 actionable interventions that can be immediately integrated into a person’s life. Participants will be able to develop their own individualized “stress management” plan.

   Richard Jones holds a Master of Arts Degree in Social Psychology and an MBA with a concentration in Healthcare Management. He holds multiple licenses and certifications in counseling and is also a Certified Employee Assistance Professional. Mr. Jones has 20 plus years of experience providing therapy, counseling services, and psychological education in various settings. Mr. Jones is an expert in employee wellness and resilience.  His methods, grounded in positive psychology, are universally recognized as best practice in terms of stress reduction and emotional health.


Integrating Best Practices from Supply Chain Professionals requires a Process View to Improve Outcomes of Artificial Intelligence

When: January 14th

6:45PM – 8:30 PM CST

Join us for our annual joint Professional Development Meeting with ISM

Topic – Integrating Best Practices from Supply Chain Professionals requires a Process View to Improve Outcomes of Artificial Intelligence

Speaker – Dr. Ben Amaba, Professional Engineer, CPIM®, LEED®AP BD+C                                                                                                                                           Chief Technology Officer, Artificial Intelligence & Data Sciences.  Industrial and Engineering Sector


Technology is changing the supply chain, and the new systems are network platforms that integrate physical and digital systems in artificial intelligence, data sciences, blockchain, autonomous vehicles and robotic process automation. The convergence of these technologies holds great promise. This presentation describes the disruption in the supply chain and the primary patterns that are surfacing.

The gaps in scaling and availability are hindered primarily in the areas of process, governance, integration and openness of the architectures, rather thanthe algorithms and design models. Where open-source models have been readily available for years, the next chasms to be crossed emerge in the process by integrating disparate proprietary databases, removing bias in models, organizing and cleaning data across multi-cloud platforms, and establishing open integration standards to bring together hybrid architectures.

Best practices in SCOR provide a target where we can align measurable goals to the development of new processes and systems. Ignoring the digital transformation’s impact, the governance gaps, and the benchmarks will create confusion, delays and restarts for the supply chain.

““I recently completed the excellent S&OP training class offered through ASCM Colorado Chapter. About 1 year ago my company began a formal S&OP process, and I was asked to take on the
facilitator role. Although I’ve been exposed to S&OP concepts, I found the training class covered essential fundamentals that reinforced and strengthened by understanding. The learning environment created a solid forum to discuss specifics about our business and how the S&OP process can be more effective. The course pacing allowed time to absorb material and understand the critical factors to ensure S&OP success. I took away several important changes to implement in the S&OP process which will strengthen my company’s bottom line! This course was the same high quality product I’ve come to know ASCM Colorado Chapter to offer, and I speak from experience holding my CPIM and CSCP training through the chapter classes!” Tony Fabrizio, CPIM, CSCP, General Shale Brick
