2007, the first NexTrend event focused on providing educators with an overview
of the logistics industry and employment trends. In 2008, NexTrend II will bring
together industry experts and educational leaders to create a set of specific
and progressive training courses, a region-wide curriculum to support the needs
of the goods movement industry, and ongoing advisory groups to sustain and grow
an advanced logistics workforce.
Our conference goals and curriculum development
efforts were conceived of and developed by a broad-based regional coalition of
workforce development institutions.
