Furniture World News on

Groovystuff announced that it will again sponsor students from the Appalachian Supply Chain Club (ASCC) at the fall High Point Market October 22-25, the Suites at Market Square, High Point, NC.  With the demands on furniture retailers and manufactures in today‚Äôs economy, delivering products to the customer at the lowest possible cost has never been more important and these students are at market to network with industry professionals and demonstrate how they can competitively improve the bottom line for market attendees.
The ASCC is Appalachian State University's student-led supply chain management club. The club emphasizes six sigma, and quality management techniques as a core business philosophy and apply information systems and quantitative analysis to support this approach. All members are also members of APICS (
http://www.apics.org), the parent organization. Most members are also actively working towards their minor in supply chain management.
As a mission statement, the ASCC promotes supply chain management by offering student members the chance to interact with industry professionals, while promoting career and professional development with networking and community involvement.
ASCC has 28 board members from various companies, including Transportation Insight, IBM, Lowes Home Improvement, and Total Insight. This semester we are having speakers from several of our board member companies come and talk about their companies, how they use supply chain management, and what opportunities they have for our students. We are planning a trip to Lowes Regional Distribution Center in Statesville NC, have an Advisory Board meeting in Boone, attending the American Home Furniture Alliance Show, and getting involved in the community through community service.
