Welcome to the 16th Annual USA Supply Chain Management Winter Conference Registration Site! USA 2015 Logo_LRG

 

The USA Supply Chain Management Winter Conference is an annual event designed intentionally to facilitate interaction and learning between USA Supplier-Partners and Supply Chain/Technical representatives from USA's eight member utilities and staff in order to grow our existing relations in a manner mutually beneficial to all parties.  In addition to representatives from all USA member utilities, we are excited to welcome Mr. Jim Ripple, Director of Supply Chain for Southern Nuclear as our guest for 2019.

The Winter Conference is open only to suppliers with active USA Agreements and represents a fantastic opportunity for significant "face-time" with numerous customers in one place for the cost of a single trip.  We schedule a variety of fun and educational activities all with the goal of maximizing meaningful interaction and networking while providing high value to the attendees.  100% of survey respondents after our 2018 Conference said it was worthwhile and a good value for the investment of their time and money.  Space is limited so don't miss out!

While the Conference schedule itself officially kicks off for Supplier-Partners with our traditional Welcome Reception on Tuesday, January 29 at 5:30 PM, and will include all the informative presentations and breakout meetings (speed-dating) that make this Conference an attendee favorite, we are pleased to also make several optional activities available to those interested:

Golf - Monday, January 28 beginning at 11:04 AM on the beautiful Palm Course on the grounds of the Resort.  Sign up in Individual Registration.  Golfers of all abilities (or no ability) welcome!

Supplier Technical Presentations - On Tuesday, January 30, we will once again be providing the opportunity for Supplier-Partners to make private 30 minute presentations to Site Representatives and USA Staff to discuss ideas and opportunities for additional value-add products and services that might be of interest to the utilities.  This activity is separate from our traditional "speed-dating" meetings that will occur during the General Session.  Additional details and information to be provided by Jim Kitchens.

National SAFER Regional Response Center Tour - On Friday morning, February 1, take a tour of the SAFER Regional Response Center located near Phoenix.  This is one of two facilities (the other one is in Memphis) implemented based on lessons learned from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.  The tour is free and transportation provided courtesy of PIM (Pooled Inventory Management).  You'll be back at the hotel by noon.  Space is limited - sign up in Individual Registration.
