SCIP name change
For those who have an interest in the CI space:
On Thursday May 20, 2009, the SCIP Board of Directors met to continue the process of developing a strategic plan to grow SCIP. One critical element of their discussion was whether or not to change the Society’s name. The name change consideration supports two goals of the organization:
- Expand the SCIP membership in both depth and breadth to increase the impact and exposure of competitive intelligence (CI) membership, and to expand the sponsorship opportunities and attendance at our events on a global basis.
- Develop a wider membership community to include CI clients as well as CI practitioners.
The SCIP Board has proposed changing the organization’s name:
From: Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals
To: Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals
