Individual Memberships in WERC


 

Who are WERC Individual Members?

WERC's Individual Members are both current and future logistics professionals, as well as their educators and mentors. Members either currently lead, direct and manage the efficient flow of information, materials and finished goods throughout the supply chain, hope to do so in a future career, or are training the supply chain leaders of the future. Recognizing this vast diversity of needs, WERC has created four different types of Individual memberships:
There are many benefits included universally across all five types of WERC Individual Memberships, including savings, access and information:
  • Significant discounts on your WERC Annual Conference participation
  • Access to other supply chain and logistics professionals in your region through local WERCouncils and our online, members-only network directory
  • A broad range of industry-specific education, resources and research

WERC Individual Membership Types

Professional Member ½ Annual Dues: $275 

Professional members are currently employed within the supply chain field. They are tasked with daily responsibilities associated with warehousing, logistics, material handling, management, distribution, transportation or related functions.


Mentoring Membership
Package ½ Annual Dues: Mentor $275 / Each Protege $150

To help members further develop high-potential employees, WERC has created a special Mentoring Membership package that includes a special, one-year discounted rate for each designated protege. This arrangement offers access to WERC's professional development resources - including information on trends and best practices, industry-leading events, networking opportunities and an extensive research library.
  • To qualify for the Mentoring Membership Package, the Mentor must be a current WERC Professional Member in good standing; proteges must not be a past or current WERC member. There is no limit on the number of protege's, however, all parties must be employed by the same organization.
  • Mentors can add proteges at any time. Each protege membership lasts for a one-year term. Upon conclusion of the protege one-year membership, they may renew at the full annual Professional Member rate of $275.
  • The Mentor and each protege receive a copy of WERC's publication, Mentoring Programs in DCs, which offers guidance on the creation of successful mentoring programs.
