It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 52nd NEDSI Annual Conference. This year’s meeting is being held in the historic city of Alexandria, Va., located just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
Under the able leadership of Dr. Amit Arora (Program Chair), the conference program committee is developing an exciting interdisciplinary program. Global supply chain issues have attracted unprecedented attention recently, spurred mainly by rapidly increasing e-Commerce activities and pandemic-related uncertainties. There isn’t a person or business left untouched one way or the other by these uncertainties. In this volatile and changing world, the conference’s theme – Risk, Resilience, and Recovery in Turbulent Business Environments – will help you learn and understand the nuances of operating in turbulent business environments. I also hope you will take this opportunity to network, reconnect with old friends, meet new people, and challenge yourself to think critically about strategies to deal with business uncertainties.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to the NEDSI Annual Conference, March 30 – April 1, 2023.
