NAW opens registration for manager’s course

Home News NAW opens registration for manager’s course

WASHINGTON—Registration is now open for the National Association of Wholesaler- Distributors (NAW)’s flagship classroom educational course—the Wholesale Distribution Manager’s Course (WDMC)—scheduled June 20 to 24 at Ohio State University in Columbus.

Networking with wholesale distribution industry peers from different product lines of trade is one of the benefits of attending the WDMC, noted Ruth Stadius, NAW’s communications manager. “WDMC combines classroom instruction, small-group discussions and computer laboratories, all centered on a specially designed and updated wholesale distribution industry case study.”

From Monday evening through Friday mid-day, distribution managers will examine the wholesale distribution business and cover all major functional areas, including: sales management, value-added service, market- focused planning, financial management and control, human resources management and teamwork, and supply chain management.

Registrants are assigned to teams who assemble each night for brainstorming sessions. “The emphasis of the teamwork is on original and creative idea generation,” she said, “and real-world problem solving is the ultimate goal. The course concludes with each team presenting its remedies for a troubled distribution company to participants and the faculty.”

For more details and how to register, call 202.872.0885 or visit naw.org/WDMC11. Special discounts apply to groups.
