President’s Message

On behalf of the Board of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) San Diego/Baja Roundtable, welcome to our website!  We serve Supply Chain professionals in the San Diego/Baja region by providing educational and networking opportunities through industry speaking events, facility tours, and socials.

The San Diego/Baja Roundtable continues in working diligently to build and grow CSCMP’s footprint in the region and to provide the same services and opportunities found in roundtables throughout the country.  I would like to thank all who are presently supporting the Roundtable and those who have supported us in years past.  “The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it” is the perfect expression to describe our organization. Whether you are an industry veteran, a college student, someone returning to the work force or just beginning your career, CSCMP is an incredible way to learn, network and develop yourself professionally.  We ask that you come and support the Roundtable.  Even if you have not been a part of a CSCMP Roundtable before, we urge you to take advantage of the global CSCMP organization and the interaction with your supply chain peers.

The 2016-2017 Roundtable board is working to organize an exciting year of programs starting with our first local event of the season, October 19, 2016 at Stone Brewing Co. in Escondido, CA.  The event is a tour of the brewery followed by product tasting and a panel made up of the Stone Brewing Co.’s Supply Chain management team.  The CSCMP 2016 Global conference will be held in Orlando, FL, September 25 – 28th.  This conference presents the CSCMP community the opportunity to interact with supply chain professionals from all over the world. Please visit our Event Calendar for a list of this season’s events.

I welcome you to attend one of our many events and get involved with our organization. Every event is planned to enrich your Supply Chain knowledge and professional networking.  If you’re an experienced leader, mid-career manager, young professional or student interested in the supply chain, I believe the CSCMP San Diego/Baja can enhance your professional development.

Regards,

Michael Van Vugt
President, CSCMP San Diego/Baja
