Procurement Peer Group Web Meeting 

From Burned Out to Fired Up: Taking Procurement from Defense to Offense in the Pandemic Supply Chain 
August 31, 2021 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
Discuss supply challenges with other members, how you and your team avoid burnout, and share how you are looking ahead to the future of supply chain in your organization.This meeting will be held via web only. 

The health and safety of our members is the UWEBC’s top priority. UW–Madison is monitoring the COVID-19 situation in collaboration with local, state and federal agencies. Based on campus' guidance, this meeting will be held via web only to allow our members a convenient and safe way to attend.

While our personal lives are returning to "normal", the supply chain is still far from normal. Most procurement leaders and planners have been given a lot of lemons, and few of us know how to turn them into lemonade.

This meeting will focus on sharing how each of us have overcome challenges, strategies we use to keep up team morale in a tough supply environment, and how we find time for continuing to build the supply chain of the future while cleaning up backlogs of the past.

Participate in Customizing the Agenda: Help shape our presentation content – and maximize its relevance for you – by suggesting topics of interest when you register.

Supply Chain Peer Group Split

The Supply Chain Management Practice Area provides a highly interactive forum for member companies to gain insights from and discuss challenges with supply chain experts in break-outs, member company presentations and case studies.

To better serve our members, the Supply Chain Management Peer Group was recently split into the Logistics and Distribution Peer Group and the Procurement Peer Group.

You can read more about why we decided to change the peer groups here.

If you have not selected which Peer Group you want to join, you will receive emails for both. To update your subscription settings, sign in above, click on "My Account" and edit your subscriptions under "Email Communication Management Center."
