The annual conference of the National Confectioners’ Logistics Council, Inc., coordinated once again by partner Jerry Gimmel and Abby Spencer in Chicago, went off without a hitch! Representatives from candy and transportation companies were presented with an educational program consisting of liability issues, insurance coverage, employment law and cold chain logistics management. The educational program was valuable, but as many attendees stated the conference affords them the ability to build and maintain relationships, something that they find priceless. The Omni Hotel proved to be an exceptional venue. Chicago was beautiful, full of friendly people. The candy hauled back in heavy suitcases is still being devoured by our Staff. Jerry and Abby look forward to next year’s NCLC conference which will be held here in our own backyard, Washington, D.C.
