Supply Chain RAW: Relevant, Authentic, and Well-Timed.

A bimonthly webinar series with the real conversations needed to build the Capital Regions’ resilient supply chain.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are shifting our inaugural Supply Chain BR (SCBR) event to next year. In the meantime, to meet the demand for timely discussions around the supply chain disruptions we’re all experiencing, we are launching Supply Chain BR | RAW—a bimonthly webinar series and prelude to our rescheduled fall SCBR2021 conference.

In this webinar series, you’ll hear from dedicated leaders in warehousing, logistics, transportation, HR, finance, and more who are on the frontlines of navigating supply chain progress and problem-solving for their companies (and customers). Speakers will take live questions from attendees throughout the webinar to facilitate candid discussion. For more information about each scheduled webinar and registration details, check out the details below:
