CSCMP CHICAGO Roundtable’s Education Committee presents:
American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN)
and “Interactive Disaster Simulation” event
Join the CSCMP Chicago Roundtable at the third event of the Education Committee’s 2019/2020 lecture series. Our vision is to create opportunities for students to learn first-hand about supply chain from practitioners of leading-edge technologies and supply chains.
Friday, February 7, 2020 at DePaul University, we are very lucky to host an event with the Executive Director of ALAN.
ALAN is an industry-wide organization that exists to provide supply chain assistance to disaster relief organizations (and other non-profits). They do this by bringing the expertise and resources of the logistics industry together with non-profit disaster relief organizations. Thus, they can help solve their most pressing supply chain challenges immediately after disasters strike.
As part of the event, students will have the unique opportunity to directly participate in a disaster relief simulation and experience the challenges of managing a supply chain effectively during a crisis.
This game-based session puts you in the role of a business, non-profit, or government organization working to deliver critical commodities to a community following a disruptive event. You’ll race against time to keep supplies moving while confronting challenges common to disaster. Performance metrics will be reviewed using data visualizations, and attendees will explore strategies for addressing real world supply chain risks simulated during the session.
NOTE: Attendees should bring a wifi-enabled smartphone or tablet to participate in this session.
Finally, to facilitate collaboration and interaction, speed networking will be conducted to give everyone a chance to make new connections.
Kathy Fulton is ALAN’s executive director. She leads the organization in facilitating donations of logistics services and equipment to enable delivery of millions of dollars’ worth of humanitarian aid. Kathy’s passion is the intersection of supply chain and emergency management, focusing on the critical role logistics and supply chain professionals play in disaster relief. She also serves on many national workgroups that are focused on the efficient coordination of logistics activities during disasters such as the Department of Homeland Security among others.
