Support Your Local CSCMP & WERC Organizations

By Steve Simmerman | 10/12/2010 | 6:44 PM

Local CSCMP and WERC organizations offer fantastic opportunities to network, learn and more. I would encourage all of you to participate in some small way.  I just participated in the N. Texas WERC Conference where over 200 supply chain practitioners spent the day attending educational sessions and networking with a host of sponsoring companies in a 'mini tradeshow'.  Interaction was great and feedback was very positive.  On a similar note, the CSCMP-Arizona Roundtable will be holding their 4th Annual Supply Chain Symposium on November 9th at the ASU Skysong Innovation Center.  There are several excellent speakers lined up along with 15 sponsoring companies.  Speakers include:

  • Barry Broome - CEO/President - Greater Phoenix Economic Council
  • Elijah Ray - SVP Client Solutions - UTi Integrated Logistics
  • Rick Blasgen - CEO/President of CSCMP
  • Dave Maloney - Senior Editor - DC Velocity magazine
  • Randall Gibson - Managing Principal - Diamond Head Associates
  • Dick Landis - President/CEO - HELP, Inc.
  • Darin Endecott - Global Quality Director - RUAN Transportation

Presentations will include topics for "Inside the Four Walls" and "Outside the Four Walls".  If you or anyone you know related to supply chain will be in Phoenix on November 9th I would encourage you to plan on joining the group the day.  It promises to be educational and rewarding.  For more information and registration simply click on www.cscmp-az.org/2010Symposium.aspx .

Take some time, attend a local WERC or CSCMP meeting or event - you'll be glad you did!
