The Distribution Solutions Conference is the one place each year that operations takes center stage and we want your ideas for Workshops at the 2014 Show! From December 11 to January 17, the DSC Workshop Session Proposal Site will be open so that you can submit workshop topics for the 2014 Conference. Every proposal will be considered by the Council during the planning meeting in early February, and all submitters will be notified whether their topic was selected. The link to the site will be sent by email to attendees and exhibitors of the 2013 conference, and will also be posted on this webpage. We look forward to hearing your ideas!
