Recap of ILN Business Session 

Now in its second year, the IAM Logistics Network (ILN) met for its annual business session on Oct. 9.


This year's agenda covered the group's first Regional Meeting in Antwerp this past May and what the potential options are for 2015; the establishment of an ILN Advisory Board composed of volunteer members; the development of an ILN online directory; and IAM's decision to launch a new nonprofit called IAM Here 2 Help (H2H). Related to the Here 2 Help initiative, IAM invited the Executive Director of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN), Kathy Fulton, to speak about ALAN's mission and how they can partner with the ILN.


At the conclusion of the business session, attendees networked with fellow members at the ILN Cocktail Hour.

Reminder to Use ILN Logo
IAM encourages all ILN members to incorporate the Logistics Network's new logo into your marketing materials, business cards, and email signatures to show that you are logistics professionals. This logo design captures the international element of logistics through the incorporation of the globe, and the gears represent the diverse - and often interconnected - nature of the logistics sectors. 

The logo's shape is reminiscent of a key, and the  tagline, "The Key to Success in Logistics", spells out what we all strive for in the ILN. 
The logos can be downloaded on the ILN Community on the IAM Social Cafe
