Home » SCMAP Perspective » Changes As Promised

At the induction last Feb. 10, incoming president Ike Castillo made a promise, that 2012 would be a different year for SCMAP.


So far president Ike is on track. After the planning session in January, SCMAP blasted off with its first GMM, on Feb. 23, which was billed as a One Day Supply Chain Conference. It was a format different from past GMMs indeed, and at a new venue, the Bayanihan Center at Unilab.


The second GMM, on April 26, was similar in format to past GMMs, but it was cross-scheduled with our first seminar for the year, a soft skills seminar conducted by Ateneo professor Ninoy Rollan. The seminar was held in the morning, and continued in the afternoon for the GMM.


The next activity, the Logistics Immersion Course, was also different. Aside from the use of RORO to and from a Boracay itinerary, the seminar content was drastically changed. Instead of now repetitious talks on the maritime sector (speakers from MARINA, PPA, shipping lines) and the economy (speaker from UAP), the course made use of SCMAP talent. Below are the topics and speakers:


• Service Model Modeling – Key to Defining your Value Proposition by Ike Castillo

• Island Logistics Strategies – The Road to a Progressive Archipelagic Economy by Arnel Gamboa

• Supply Chain and Inventories – Impact on Competitiveness and Costs by Augusto Arguelles

• Important Choices in Transportation by Gabriel Raymond Patag

• SCMAP Membership Discussions by Gabriel Raymond Patag


But the major changes are yet to come. A major review has been made of the by-laws, which will change the face of SCMAP. Major changes will affect the membership. However I do not wish to preempt anyone, as the proposed changes will still have to be voted on at the next GMM. This is all I can say for now.


Next Activity – Intro to SCM
