We want to alert our Supply Chain Matters readers to the fact that The Supply Chain Council (SCC) will be hosting an Executive Summit in Houston on October 13-15.  The event offers senior supply chain executives a forum for discussing key emerging challenges in business and supply chain strategy.  It also offers an opportunity for executives to network with other industry peers through panel discussions, roundtables and other networking events. The theme of this upcoming summit is “Boom & Bust: The New Realities for Supply Chain Excellence”.

Readers may recall that SCC had sponsored these executive summit meetings on an annual basis, but the effects of the recent depressed economy had forced a postponement in past summits.  The location and venue of this upcoming October event was specifically chosen by SCC to provide a more justified educational and learning venue, as opposed to previous venues held in resort locations.  Summit attendance will be limited to 100 executives.

You can view further information and registration details at the SCC Executive Summit web site.
