ISM-Philadelphia Employment & Academic Partnership Committee hosted a Supply Chain Panel discussion and Q&A about careers in Supply Chain at Temple University on Dec 1, 2016.   The aim of the event was allow students to obtain a better understanding of what to expect when thinking about careers in logistics, supply analytics, sourcing, and contracting.    The event was moderated by Irene Marnell  and generated a lot of good conversation between the students and seasoned professionals.   A big thank you to panel members Ed Scott, Frank Podlasinski, Dan Gallagher, and Dave Panzera for being on the panel and to Misty Blessey and Temple University for facilitating the event.

At the December Dinner Meeting on December 8th, the Emerging Professionals Group sold 50/50’s in support of the scholarship fund for young professionals, raising $545.00 toward the fund.   A big thank you to Liz Powell from Temple University from helping with ticket sales and a special thank you for the generosity of Ron Heere, who purchased $300 in tickets and donated his winnings back to the fund.
