MPS Sits on the Utility Supply Management Alliance Board of Directors

The 2015 Utility Supply Management Alliance Conference celebrated the organization’s 20th year and established USMA as the premier educational conference for supply chain managers, suppliers, and distributors in the power industry.  The record attendance of 605 industry professionals provided a platform for productive meetings with many companies.

Each year, USMA has a high profile keynote speaker kick off the conference. This year, former presidential nominee, Herman Cain, delivered an entertaining message centered around overcoming career adversity. The General Session started each day followed by breakout sessions on both industry specific and professional development topics. These breakout sessions have become a major piece of the USMA conference as industry experts provide education on everything from utilizing drone technology for maintenance to supplier diversity requirements, and everything in between.

MPS has held a board position on the USMA Board of Directors since the conference’s inception and is proud to continue participation in this important industry organization. The 2016 conference is already being planned and will be held in New Orleans.
