There are many professional groups for supply chain managers, but only one group for those who work within the restaurant industry. The National Restaurant Association’s Supply Chain Management Executive Study Group is a unique, specialized resource devoted to keeping you current with the latest developments in your field and successfully meeting its challenges.
In today’s economic environment, supply chain management is a critical part of a restaurant company’s success. The NRA’s Supply Chain Management study group examines emerging issues that affect restaurants, their suppliers and food served to guests.
Solutions, Discussions, Networking
The Supply Chain Management Executive Study Group efficiently delivers information and answers that are specific to the issues you face daily, from increasing commodity and wholesale food prices to inventory management challenges. The group is your window on what fellow restaurant industry leaders are doing and which strategies they have found work best.
The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) has created the David R. Parsley Endowed Scholarship Fund for Supply Chain Management to encourage students to pursue higher education towards furthering their career in food service supply chain management.
