Networking Opportunities

Join supply chain professionals from around DFW


Learn about emerging trends, new concepts, and how to tackle current challenges

  CSCMP’s first conference organized by the DFW Roundtable for the North Texas supply chain community.  Join us for a half day event starting with a networking breakfast with a keynote panel on the state of logistics. Connect with supply chain professionals and get up to date on trending topics: blockchain in logistics, North American and international trade and tariffs, and other hot supply chain concepts from subject matter experts.  

Keep in mind that proceeds from all events and tours hosted by the DFW Roundtable of CSCMP go toward scholarships for local supply chain majors and a minimum of 2 students sponsored to attend the annual EDGE Conference.  In the 2017-2018 season, the DFW Roundtable raised nearly $10,000 that was awarded to students here in DFW.  Attending the conference is not only beneficial personally and professionally for those two participate, it is a contribution to the future leaders of the industry.

Registration fees include breakfast, drinks and snacks.
