Supply Chain Day at Georgia Tech was held last Wednesday, 9/7. Supply Chain Day is a mini, logistics-focused career fair and an opportunity to meet Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) students specifically interested in the field of supply chain and logistics. The Atlanta WERCouncil represented WERC at Supply Chain Day and spoke with numerous students and several faculty members about WERC and the Atlanta WERCouncil. We also donated a $1000 fellowship to be awarded to a Georgia Tech student in the Masters in Supply Chain Engineering program. This fellowship will be awarded later in the year to the ISyE graduate student with the highest overall grade in ISyE 6335 -- Supply Chain Engineering I, which is taught John Bartholdi, PhD. (We intend to offer this award annually.)

The 7th Annual Atlanta WERC Golf outing was held August 26, 2016 at Woodmont Golf and Country Club.  We had a beautiful day with 5 teams of 4 golfers participate in the event.  We were able to have a networking sessions during the breakfast and luncheon times.  The Woodmont Head Pro and Larry Clausen spoke to the group before and after the event.  Tom Valentine, our Vice President, spoke about the Fall calendar of events.

A large thank you goes to those companies that helped sponsor the event.  Atlanta WERC sponsored breakfast biscuits from Chick Fil A.  KNAPP Logistics Automation and Veritiv Logistics Solutions were Gold Sponsors for the event.  Valentine Solutions was the tee gift sponsor.  All sponsors were given the opportunity to speak about their company during the lunch that followed the event.

The winning team of Mike Broaded, Larry Clausen, Kevin Coon and Grant Kanavage shot 12 under par to win the event.  All players went home with some type of a prize during the event.

North Texas Ben Hogan Tour - August 4, 2016

North Texas had an event today to tour the Ben Hogan Facility in Fort Worth. We have a great turnout and a crowd very interesting in learning how golf clubs are made from ‘scratch’ to a complete set of clubs! The tour guide, Alexia was very informative, and knowledgeable about the technologies used and the application of the finished product, given she played at TCU! It was a quick event, but packed with a lot of great information on handling a unique product, which requires the highest level of quality and care during the process. North Texas WERCouncil thanks Ben Hogan Golf!  Click the photo below to view the slide show.
