IWLA Announces Fall 2015 Lineup
July 28, 2015 (Des Plaines, Ill.) – IWLA, the resource for warehouse logistics, announces its fall lineup of educational programs focused on advancing the core competencies, technologies, and legal protections of warehouse logistics professionals. These in-person, multi-day events bring together high-caliber speakers and content that warehouse leaders can use to improve their own operations. In addition, IWLA events foster idea sharing and help build a strong warehouse community.
“IWLA courses are developed by the members for the members,” says IWLA President & CEO Steve DeHaan. “These warehousing practitioners identify the agenda topics, speakers, and their most pressing business challenges. This ensures IWLA courses maintain a high degree of relevancy and immediate applicability.”
Each of the fall 2015 IWLA education course programs is built for a specific warehouse logistics audience. (For more information and registration please visit www.IWLA.com.)
