Highlights from the President

Our March Professional Development meeting  was held on March 23rd and was an In-Person Networking Event. 

We had two speakers from The Andersons, Inc.  headquartered in Maumee Ohio.   Brecken Price, VP and General Manager, Chris Taylor,  Senior Procurement Manager.  The presentation topic:  An overview of supply chain challenges in the Specialty Liquid and Turf Division and how they are dealing with them.  It was a great presentation with dinner and we also had time for Q & A’s.
