Next Supplier Risk Group Meeting to Provide Strategies to Manage Your Suppliers

If your responsibilities include vetting your vendors to ensure the steady supply of raw materials or services to your company, you need to join the next teleconference meeting of CMA’s Supplier Risk Credit group to provide strategies to assist you in managing your suppliers.

On August 29 at 10am, we will have two guest speakers. First up is Gary Mendell of Meridian Finance, who will be providing an international supplier risk update on topics including international supply-chain issues updates, assessing the reliability of vendors in other countries, and protecting advance payments against non-delivery from abroad.

The second speaker will be Nick Vyas, an expert in supply chain management, who will address establishing a vendor risk framework. Mr. Vyas is the Executive Director for the Center for Global Supply Chain Management, the Academic Director for the MS in Global Supply Chain Management, and an assistant professor of clinical and data science and operations for the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.

Whether your essential suppliers are in California, the U.S. or worldwide, any interruption in the Supply Chain can have a devastating effect on your company.
