USMA President 2015

USMA will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary in 2015 and we are looking forward to celebrating with you in Savannah, Georgia.  For 20 years USMA board members have been working hard to deliver on our mission to:

  • Reduce overall supply chain costs by providing a progressive forum to utilities and suppliers.
  • Demonstrate aggressive and responsible leadership, responsiveness to customer needs and continuous improvement in supply chain management.
  • Improve service and profitability of utilities and suppliers
  • Support of the ALS Foundation as our chosen charity.

Over the last 20 years, our board members have changed but each of us, old and new, are committed to making USMA the best supply chain education forum we can.  Our loyal conference attendees have helped us in this mission with thoughtful and specific feedback, both positive and constructive...THANK YOU for your input!

We will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary in many ways, but I am very happy to inform you that Allan Schoeneberg, USMA's 1st President in 1996, will be joining us to help kick-off this very special conference.

The Program Committee is hard at work reviewing feedback forms and evaluating relevant and current topics, both supply chain and professional development, so we can once again deliver a premier conference for your education dollar.  Our goal to deliver content with a "Take it home and use it" value is more important now than ever.  Also, USMA's ability to bring utility supply chain professionals and their key and potential suppliers together for a meaningful dialog is extremely important to us.

I will be using this website to inform you of our progress as we prepare for the 2015 conference as often as I can.  In the meantime, I hope that you will be planning to join us once again in Savannah, Georgia on May 18–20, 2015...I promise it will be an event you don't want to miss.

Best regards,
David Hess, USMA President 2015
