SCMAP’s third General Membership Meeting of the year, to be held on 22 June, will look at securing the supply chain: how to deal with and minimize risk and disruption and continue serving customers.

The topic comes in light of recent events that pose the question of whether supply chain is ready to handle potential disruptions. Security issues highlighted by recent incidents in Mindanao, as well as the botched robbery at Resorts World Manila, compel supply chain managers to look at their processes and systems. While supply chain involves in large part managing risks, planning for extraordinary circumstances (such as natural disasters and man-made incidents) and ensuring minimal disruption is top of mind once again.

In this GMM we gather the collective expertise of the SCMAP board to look at this issue. SCMAP president Nestor Felicio, who also acts as corporate vice president for integrated planning and logistics management at United Laboratories, will talk about supply chain resiliency. Also, SCMAP director Carlo Curay, also vice president for business solutions at XVC Logistics, will discuss how logistics providers do prepare for such situations in real life. The event is also expected to feature knowledge sharing among delegates.

Finally, we will hear from Apol Salud Jr. of Globe Business as they discuss how technology can help supply chain managers mitigate and minimize risk through better decision-making and transparency.

We have also invited a representative from the Philippine National Police to discuss the current peace and order situation in the Philippines; more details will be revealed as soon as we get them.

The GMM will be held on 22 June, 1pm to 5pm, at the Platinum Room of the F1 Hotel Manila, 32nd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Entry is free for one representative of SCMAP member companies; a PHP 900 fee will be levied on additional representatives of SCMAP members, and PHP 1,000 for non-members, payable at the venue.
