CAPS is excited to bring back our Senior Management Roundtable event. This event is being hosted at Arizona State University where W. P.

You and your team can interact with fellow senior leaders as well as ASU Supply Chain faculty. The agenda will feature a cross-section of topics where you can connect with fellow attendees to discuss the latest research, trends, and strategies to tackle today’s “new normal”.​
