Raleigh, NC – Open Sky Group is pleased to sponsor the 2016 WERC Annual Conference, May 15 – 18 in Providence, Rhode Island. If you’re not familiar with the WERC, it stands for Warehouse Education Resource Council and its members range from Manager and Director to VP and SVP of Warehousing, Operations, and Supply Chain for all types of companies. WERC prides itself on education and offering opportunities to its members to benchmark, brainstorm, and network, as well as tours, to see how other DC’s operate.
Open Sky Group’s President, Curt Sardeson is Vice President of the NCWERCouncil. The local chapter works to extend the mission of WERC, offering tours of locally-based companies’ community involvement through programs such as OneWarmCoat and much more.
You can find Open Sky Group at our table in the Solutions Center for breakfast or lunch (look for our name and logo on table signage). We’ll also be spending some time at the JDA booth and will be attending some of the many great educational sessions this week. Here’s what others are saying about the WERC Annual Conference.
WERC is the only professional organization focused on logistics management and its role in the supply chain. Through membership in WERC, seasoned practitioners and those new to the industry master best practices and establish valuable professional relationships.
Since being founded in 1977, WERC has maintained a strategic vision to continuously offer resources that help distribution practitioners and suppliers stay on top in our dynamic, variable field. These include national, regional, local and online educational events; performance metrics for benchmarking; practical research; expert insights; and multiple opportunities for peer-to-peer knowledge exchange.
Memberships come in two primary types – Individual and Corporate – and in a variety of types and levels to best accommodate the varying needs of the practitioners and suppliers we serve.
