Two CSCMP conferences explore new supply chain thinking

CSCMP Is sponsoring two major events that will look at innovative ideas and practices in supply chain management.

The 2011 CSCMP Taiwan Conference, to be held August 18–19 in Taipei, Taiwan, will bring together leading companies and experts from around the world to share their insights and experiences regarding managing "green" supply chains.

Session topics will include such key issues as environmentally sound design, procurement, manufacturing, logistics, software solutions, and marketing and branding. Day Two of the event will include field visits to nearby distribution centers. For more information, visit http://cscmp.org/events/taiwan-2011/index.asp.

CSCMP's 2011 Annual Global Conference, which will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA from October 2–5, will address the new systems, new thinking, new processes, and new ways of communication that are being introduced into the supply chain. The conference, which attracts thousands of supply chain professionals from around the world, will feature 30 tracks on such must-know topics as sales and operations planning, using metrics, emerging supply chain technologies, driving profitable revenue growth, and many more. Four pre-conference workshops will offer additional learning opportunities. Plus, the conference will once again include the "Supply Chain of the Future" exhibition showcasing the latest in supply chain and logistics equipment and technology.

Participants will have several opportunities to network and share their own challenges and innovations with peers. For example, editors from Supply Chain Quarterly will be hosting open discussions on leading supply chain trends, developments, and practices.

Just announced: Keynote speaker Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney will describe, with up-to-the minute detail, the current financial situation and what it means for you, your family, and your business.

CSCMP opens branch office in India

India's role in today's global supply chain is gaining in importance, and CSCMP is ready to help supply chain professionals in this fast-growing region get the information they need. In June, the Council opened a branch office in Mumbai to serve members in India and the surrounding area. The office will also expand the organization's reach and programming throughout South Asia.

CSCMP President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Blasgen believes the time is ripe for entering India. "India is poised to become one of the world's major supply chain hubs," he said. "We are excited to offer those working in the region the comprehensive menu of CSCMP products and services to help them grow their businesses and their careers."

CSCMP has chosen Anshuman Neil Basu to serve as regional CSCMP executive director. Basu has more than 15 years of supply chain management experience overseeing strategic projects in India and the Middle East for such global organizations as Philips Electronics India Limited, TATA Group, 3M, Sony Corp., and APL.
