“Educating and Connecting the World’s Supply Chain Professionals.”
As we roll into spring, we are in an exciting time for the Roundtable. Our April event was a home run at the Game Stop Refurbishment Center in Grapevine. I have a whole new appreciation for what happens to an X-Box or Madden ’14 game when it gets sold back to a store and needs some fixing up. Many thanks to Kevin Wicks and the Programs team for arranging a most fascinating and impressive tour.
For our May event, we have an acclaimed speaker set-up for our Thursday, May 21st dinner event at the La Cima Club in Las Colinas. Lora Cecere, the Founder of Supply Chain Insights, will be addressing our group on “Metrics that Matter”, a topic that will hit home for all of us as we live in an increasingly KPI, dashboard and analytically driven world. Please plan on joining us for this last event of our 2014-2015 program year.
At the May event, we will recognize our two Roundtable Scholarship winners. After a thorough selection and evaluation process, the Roundtable Scholarship committee awarded the undergraduate scholarship to Kendall Szilasi and the graduate one to Marshall Gray. Kendall is a junior at TCU where she is majoring in Supply Chain Management. She will be attending the May 21st meeting, fresh off her study trip to China. Marshall Gray is a first year MBA student at TCU, with prior experience in Consulting and the military.
Finally, our officer slate for the 2015-2016 Roundtable programs year is taking shape. Please congratulate and thank the following individuals for their service to the Roundtable going forward:
· Michelle Posadas, President · Marcia Munoz, VP Programs · Chris Stout, Treasurer · Sylvia Farris, VP Membership
We have two key positions open: Sponsorship Chair and Hospitality Chair. The sponsorship chair liaises with our existing and potential sponsors to set them up as Roundtable gold, silver or bronze level backers. The hospitality chair ensures that the registration process at our meetings runs smoothly and helps welcome attendees. If you are interested in either role, both of which allow you to gain new touch points in the community, please let me know.
Finally, we will hold a Board Meeting at 4:15 prior to the May 21st Board Meeting. All are welcome.
President, Dallas Fort Worth Roundtable
