With all of the bad news coming out of the Middle East this week, I thought that I’d share some good news about that region.

There are several purchasing and supply management professionals from the Middle East enrolled in our purchasing classes and the SPSM Certification Program. Their countries include places like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and other locations.

This week, however, we certified the first purchasing and supply management professional from Qatar. We are looking forward to many others following him in the near future.

I hope that the coming weeks will have more good, and less bad, news about the Middle East.
