ChemEdge receives rave reviews - speaker presentations posted!
Dallas, known for its fantastic hospitality, didn't disappoint us last week as NACD members, affiliates and vendors gathered there for ChemEdge 2013. This year's meeting featured the largest number of chemical distribution executives since 2007 and overall more than 350 participants. Early feedback from attendees was very enthusiastic and the sessions were packed.

This year's new and improved program brought hard-hitting topics to the forefront and helped educate the membership on regulatory compliance, Responsible Distribution implementation, customer service, logistics, warehousing, strategic benchmarking and negotiating and much more.

The speaker presentations are now posted on the ChemEdge page of the NACD website. Click here to download.

The report, released at the association’s ChemEdge Conference and based on 2012 data, states "NACD members circled the Earth roughly 6,000 times this past year in the delivery of their products." The data also showed reductions in OSHA recordable cases to 594, from 608 and in lost work days to an index of 1.3, from 1.6.

How to become a great leader
Leadership is a hot topic and will always be one. We seem to linger in a perpetual leadership vacuum. Today's presidents, CEOs, generals and coaches don't stand in comparison with the great leaders of the past — or so we are told — and in times of crisis, people cry out for someone who can show them a way to escape the looming threat.
