With an internal organizational structure reflecting the wide span of various industries, they formed six specific committees that can help deliver subject matter expertise to their membership based on the specific industry group they represent.
Glenn credits the early successes of this organization to being able to establish a network platform that allows executives in the security and loss prevention industry who span across different business segments, all sharing a common goal, to come together in one group—a platform and group that has never been done before. In the past, supply chain executives who needed information or assistance with an issue outside of their specific four walls had to rely on the old technique of calling around and finding the resource. This process took time and quite often didn’t produce the results needed to quickly resolve issues and move programs forward. However, with their structure, platform, and resources being easily accessible, they offer subject matter expertise as fast as the click of the mouse.
The future of this organization seems almost ensured, as the executives who are steering it are proven leaders in their own specialties. With hopes of launching official membership and partnering globally with retail cargo theft task forces and law enforcement in the near future, the organization will then be in a position of being able to offer assistance in helping to solve more complex criminal cases as well. Going one step further Glenn also talked about how the organization has partnered with the Loss Prevention Foundation to promote the LPC and LPQ certifications, and how they would like to expand their formal educational opportunities for all supply chain Loss Prevention and Security executives. Next year they also plan on holding their first two-day supply chain conference in September 2014 in Texas and will hopefully be releasing more information on that very soon.
This group has done an incredible job so far at bringing these executives together under the common goal of Leadership & Development and we at the Daily applaud their effort. If you’re an LP or security executive in the supply chain field we strongly recommend you become a member, as all of us are only as strong as the group we are a member of, and this group has some of the industry’s best.
