The Georgia Department of Economic Development held this year’s Georgia Logistics Summit and Modex International Conference in Atlanta. Melissa Furman, assistant dean in the James M. Hull College of Business, served as a speaker on “Generational Diversity in the Workplace: Implications for Logistics and Supply Chain Industry,” presenting to more than 1,500 people.
Over 28,000 people registered for this year’s MODEX 2018 edition of the expo. Augusta University and Augusta, GA were frequently referenced throughout the conference, with many Augusta-area businesses in attendance. In addition to Furman, Michael Shaffer, executive vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Economic Development for Augusta University and Health System, served as a panelist earlier in the conference.
Congratulations to both Melissa Furman and Michael Shaffer for all their hard work. Way to Bring Your A Game!
