I suppose that, eventually, we will run out of countries in which to award the SPSM® Certification. After all, there are a finite number of countries in the world.

Despite this fact, we again certified the first SPSM in a new country last month. In June, China became the 49th country to have an SPSM among its purchasing and supply management professionals.

There are purchasing professionals in over 80 countries that are enrolled in the Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program, so I expect to be blogging about the 50th country to get an SPSM certified at this time next month.
