At this free-to-attend Louisville, KY meet up, you'll socialize and network with local planning and supply chain professionals. Hosted by IBF and GE Appliances, there'll also be a panel discussion titled "How to Become Agile and Resilient in Today’s Changing Economy".

The panel will discuss whether traditional ways of doing business like the lean methodology need to be reevaluated and, if necessary, replaced by more flexible ones. One thing's for sure - with the various disruptions we have faced over the last 2 years, supply chains must be ready to adapt if we're to remain competitive and relevant.

Get your questions answered by our panel of expert practitioners and enjoy a bourbon or two with likeminded planning professionals and leaders.
