Logistics and Supply Chain Division
Message from president
Welcome to the newly founded Logistics and Supply Chain (LSC) Division of IIE. The LSC Division was founded in late 2011 due to the overwhelming interest and necessity of logistics and supply chain stakeholders. This division is designed to provide a forum of knowledge sharing, networking, and professional development for IIE members in the area of logistics and supply chain. The LSC Division is engaged in various activities including newsletter, webinars, conferences, and award competition. We plan to build online repository, social networking media and offer additional value adding programs for our members.
This is your division and we seek your input and participation to shape the future of this division. Please join the LSC Division and participate in our monthly board meeting, town hall meeting, and other divisional activities to provide the best value to the membership. Your LSC Division needs your immediate help!
