New Foundation Director – Alan Woods
I have been appointed as the new Director of the RLC Foundation, having taken over from Richard Castell in August, The RLC Foundation has been up and running for 16 months.
Richard’s legacy, as the Founding Director, has firmly embedded RLC aspirations for professional engagement with Industry and Academia.
The RLC Foundation national and regional events programme for 2016 has been both challenging and exciting and continues to foster relationships and best practice with our civilian partners. That was very much in evidence at the successful Log Safari event in July which 140 military and industry delegates attended. After a series of presentations and discussions on the parallels between military and commercial logistics the delegates observed live military activity across the supply and distribution, food services and ammunition disciplines.
Our next national event in partnership with Lincoln University was scheduled for 8 September, but has been postponed – date to be advised in due course. The theme for the day will be Thought Leadership and Professional Development concentrating on data and logistics and its application in the military, commercial and humanitarian arena. The RLC Foundation Awards Dinner takes place on 9 November at the Headquarters Officers Mess in Deepcut. It is the final event of the year and there will be 7 Awards presented during the dinner. These Awards are sponsored by Industry and acknowledge significant contributions by military and industry personnel within the specified categories of achievement. We are now in the process of planning national and regional events for 2017 and sincerely hope you are able to support us. We look forward to meeting you at one of our events in the future.
