  • July Meeting Announced

    Rancho Cucamonga, CA, June 22, 2018 – The IMA®  Inland Empire Chapter is proud to announce our July Technical Meeting. The next meeting will take place on Thursday July 19th, 2018.

    This month we welcome Lisa Anderson, President, LMA Consulting Group, Inc. Lisa will be discussing “The Resurgence of Manufacturing and Distribution”

    In today’s Amazonian marketplace, it is all about the customer experience. Rapid deliveries, 24/7 accessibility, constantly changing and unique customer expectations, easy returns and more! To keep your head above water, let alone surpass your competition, you must stand out from the competition with unique value. Executives struggle with how to innovate, accelerate and transform their organizations to achieve these customer expectations while maintaining – and improving – profitability and navigating the current skills gap.

    Just think – how realistic is next day delivery with rapidly evolving expectations and customized products and services when taking a slow boat from China? In this interactive presentation, we’ll discuss how several key factors have converged to make this the opportune time for manufacturing and distribution. More radical yet, Southern California, and specifically the Inland Empire, looks like “the place to be”. Join us to learn more and prepare for this resurgence!
