SANTA CLARA, Cal.–Resilinc announced it is the technical advisor and principal sponsor of the first annual Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council and Awards, to take place on Wednesday, February 25th, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency- Santa Clara, California.
The Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council is being formed to bring together supply chain risk management and resiliency practitioners with luminaries and educators to advance the professional discipline through opportunities to collaborate, develop and share best practices, and be recognized for innovation and leadership. A key goal of the Council is to elevate the profile of supply chain resiliency business challenges and opportunities vis-a-vis the C-level strategic agenda, said a release.
“We believe the supply chain resiliency movement deserves an enduring industry organization behind it with formal leadership and dedicated staff that doesn’t depend solely on the efforts of volunteers. Our vision is that while Resilinc remains the technical advisor and principal sponsor, the Council will incorporate as a not-for-profit with an expanded charter that may include the support of risk management research and benchmarks, as well as standard/best-practice methodologies and frameworks,” said Wayne Caccamo, CMO.
Resilinc also plans to leverage its existing relationships with academic institutions including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of Southern California (USC), and the University of Maryland, to support the development of university-level education programs focusing on supply chain resiliency.
