#1 Job Opportunities
At the last conference, I intentionally announced that we have some of us who are seeking for Job, perhaps some want to change their job, kindly assist if you see any opportunity. It became interactive in the hall and someone said my office will be placing an advert for a supply chain and logistics officer, I will share it he said. and immediately it was released I share it accordingly. and some of our members here remains the testimony, I am sure they understand this better.

#3 Volunteer – Staff
I received a call from one of us, he said, we are taking volunteers in my office kindly let me know if we have members that are willing to engage in such, I told him that in this our sector volunteer remain one of the best ways to secure a job, let me inform our people that are not engaged yet. The number of people that are willing is 3 while the opportunity is two. Having helped the two people, he said if the third person doesn’t mind Maiduguri. the person gladly takes it. Now he is a permanent staff.
#4 Trends-in-supply Chain
According to the English Metaphysical Poet, John Donne ‘No man is an Island’ This expresses the idea that human beings do badly when isolated from others and need to be part of a community to thrive. Things are changing every day and that informs the theme for this year conference ‘’Adapting to the shift in Supply Chain Management: Nigeria Perspective’’ you need to be informed on the contemporary way of solving supply chain problems.
#5 Supply Chain Community
The need for you to be among your people cannot be overemphasised, a member called that they immediately need an independent supply chain expert who has the cognate experience to defend and solve some immediate problems with the possibility of representing an international company in Nigeria, I told him most of our people contract with NGO has expired they are available. We do not have a choice than to immediately engage a member in our community who understand the pre-requisite language like you.

#10 Continuous learning and certification
At every conference or seminar, you get to learn new things and get certificated, no matter how sound we are we need to show we have gone through more learning and we have a certificate to show for it. Just like food nourishes our bodies, information and continued learning nourishes our minds. Lifelong learning is an indispensable tool for every career and organisation
