Comprised of distributor and manufacturer companies, the Channel Advantage Partnership (CAP) board directed investment fund was created to exclusively support the research and educational programming initiatives of the Foundation. The Channel Advantage Partnership identifies and recommends research topics that can impact the operations, profitability, and efficiency of the channel and industry at large. Since 2003, the Channel Advantage Partnership has sponsored a number of research projects that provide valuable information and best practices such as green solutions and services, product liability, service liability, customer profitability, and procurement chain management.
Submit Your Ideas
Each year, the NAED Education & Research Foundation calls for research and educational topics from our membership. The valuable submissions we receive are considered by the Foundation Board of Directors and Channel Advantage Partnership Council prior to evaluating and planning our current and future educational products and programs and sending our annual research Request For Proposal (RFP) to universities and private research and consulting firms around the country.
