Supply Chain Association spreads its wings


More than 140 guests from around Australia attended the recent launch of the new ACT & Southern NSW Division of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA).

A wide variety of public and private sector industries were represented at the launch at the National Press Club, Canberra.

They included Federal and ACT Government representatives, senior Defence representatives, IT and financial industries, the ACT and Region Chamber of Commerce and various ACT based organisations.

“The Capital Region is mature enough to not have to go to Sydney for professional development, training and networking opportunities within the Supply Chain and Logistics profession, said newly appointed Division Chairwoman, PJ Gould.

“Accordingly the ACT and Southern NSW Division is receiving excellent support across a wide sector of the community, Ms Gould said.

“The SCLAA is a professional organisation that is run by members for members and the committee is passionate about the success of our Division.”

Presenters at the launch included Air Vice-Marshal Margaret Staib, Commander Joint Logistics, who discussed Defences Joint Logistics capability and future direction.
