All about your warehouse + your people!

Join the IWLA Annual Convention + Expo held in Phoenix from March 23rd through 25th

For those who are members of this association, you already realize the value proposition membership delivers. If you are not a member, I would recommend you visit and consider the benefits of membership. I would like you all to consider attending this high value event.

Argos has been a Partner Member of this body for 2 decades. Some 7 years ago we seriously considered dropping our membership because we questioned the value proposition for us. On reflection I decided the problem was not with the association, but with us. We joined the association, exhibited at the annual convention and expected benefits to flow from that. No really significant benefits followed and so we questioned our membership.

At that time I decided we needed to be more proactive in our approach. I joined a number of committees, looked at the services offered (usually at no charge to members) and began to leverage our membership. The value proposition changed significantly and today I hold a seat on the board.

The key factor in this change has been recognizing the value of involvement. This is equally true for the warehouse members as it is for us as partner members. Networking with your peers, examining and benchmarking best practices, taking opportunities in the areas of education and legal positioning in staffing and contracts, having your voice heard in political forums are all available to you. Finding skilled employees in the career center, highlighting your existence and capabilities in the Logistics Services Locator for prospective customers and extending your reach through collaborative efforts with other members are just some of the benefits the active members are enjoying.

I look forward to seeing you in Phoenix.


In today’s competitive marketplace, we need all the advantages we can leverage for success.

This association provides far more advantage than even many members realize.




Best Regards,

Join me at the IWLA Tech & Ops Conference!

For many years the International Warehouse Logistics Association has held an annual IT conference. This year the conference is being held in Chicago over Nov. 6-8. Details of the conference can be found here.

At $299 (IWLA Members) per attendee this educational event provides a fantastic ROI. Non-members are also welcome and I recommend the conference to you for your IT and operations staff.This event is for everyone in the warehouse who touches technology or oversees any aspect of operations. Of course, C-level executives who direct operations and technology employees will also reap benefits by attending. Be sure you’re there to network with these warehouse-based 3PL leaders and to learn more about the future of your trade association.

As a board member of the association I can attest to the value of both the association itself and the educational offerings provided for members. I look forward to seeing you, and your key IT and operations players, in Chicago in November.
