Logistics and Supply Chain Division
Message from president
Welcome to the Logistics and Supply Chain (LSC) Division of IIE. The LSC Division was founded in 2011 due to overwhelming interest from logistics and supply chain stakeholders. This division is designed to provide a forum of knowledge sharing, networking, and professional development for IIE members in the area of logistics and supply chain. The LSC Division is engaged in various activities including webinars, conferences, and several award competitions. We plan to build an online repository, a social networking media, and offer additional value adding programs for our members.
This is your division! We seek your input and participation to shape the future of the division. Please join the LSC Division and participate in our board meetings, annual Town Hall meeting, and other divisional activities to provide the best value to the membership.
