“Educating and Connecting the World’s Supply Chain Professionals.”
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. This is a great time of the year to take some time off and spend time with family and friends. For the DFW Roundtable summer is also planning season. The DFW CSCMP board is committed to another successful program year. We want the Roundtable to be a forum to exchange ideas, network, and build partnerships.
I would like to thank Dr. Dale S. Rogers Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management Arizona State University. He closed our 2016-2017 program year with a fantastic presentation about economic cycles and introduced us to the Logistics Managers Index. If you have not participated in the survey I invite you to do so http://logisticsindex.org
Thanks to our sponsor Transplace and our members support we are able to sponsor 4 students to attend CSCMP EDGE. The conference will take place September 24-27 in Atlanta Georgia. Congratulations to Silvia Jimenez, Daniel Cremer, Joaquin Tapia and Mazen Brho.
On August 17th, we will host a panel of experts that will discuss the ins and outs of the upcoming Electronic Logging Device (ELD) rule along with other regulations that are impacting the logistics world. The program calendar is not finished but we will have Distribution Center and manufacturing tours, networking events, volunteering opportunities and more!
It is my pleasure to serve as the Roundtable President and introduce the 2017 – 2018 Roundtable board. I am looking forward to working with a team of committed professionals to deliver value to our members. I encourage you to connect and let us know what programs you would like to see. We have a board meeting planned for July. Please contact me if you are interested in getting more involved with the Roundtable.
Please have a fun and safe summer and see you in August!
Marcia Connors, DFW Roundtable President
