Attendees at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals' (CSCMP) Edge supply chain conference in Atlanta last year probably went expecting a sedate, buttoned-up affair. But that notion was put to rest during the opening reception when several musically inclined members hopped on stage and unleashed a torrent of hot guitar riffs accompanied by vibrant vocals.
The rocking tunes were provided by "CSCMP Unchained," a volunteer band of amateur musicians, all of whom hold day jobs in the supply chain. Now, CSCMP is looking to revive that impromptu jam band for the 2018 Edge conference, which kicks off Sept. 30 in Nashville.
If you're a logistics pro who can carry a tune, CSCMP wants you! The band is specifically in search of a rhythm section, horn or brass players, and singers. If you can contribute your skills on drums, guitar, bass, sax, trumpet, trombone, keyboard, vocals, or percussion, fill out CSCMP's online survey by Aug. 15.
CSCMP says the band's performance will probably take place in a local venue after conference hours on Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday of the conference week.
