Agendas & Meeting Minutes

Student Representatives

Companies in Supply Chain are facing rapid changes in customer expectations for high service levels at the lowest cost possible. This requires using and adapting the latest technology and methodology to meet these high demands. The UGA Supply Chain Advisory board brings together Partners from all aspects of this space including Supply Chain, Operations, Logistics, Manufacturing, Service Operations, Consulting, Software, etc. in order to provide the next generation of talent to meet these changing needs. Supply Chain companies face these challenges in a difficult labor shortage – our program can help meet this need with some best Supply Chain students in the country.

The Supply Chain Advisory Board works with the Management department to develop more relevant curriculum and courses, award scholarships to outstanding Supply Chain students, and foster invaluable interactions between companies, faculty, students and many other groups on campus including Corporate Relations and Foundations, Executive Education, the UGA Career Center, etc. Our companies provide significant insights and contributions to the Management Department in exchange for access to our top students, our classrooms (via Guest Lecturing) and the latest trends and technologies in the industry.

As student representatives on the board, we:

  • Work directly with Marty Parker, our board’s director, assisting him in a variety of Board-related tasks. Student Board members will have one or more projects that they are responsible including marketing, website development, event planning, case competitions, recruiting companies, etc.
  • Help drive the success of both the board and the Supply Chain program
  • Organize and run the Board as a student led organization
