The feedback we received from our last conference was that attendees enjoyed the interactive, hands-on learning experience and were able to return to their companies with ideas and practices that brought real value. The Nothing but SCORECARDS conference will offer attendees another valuable learning experience.

The Nothing but SCORECARDS conference is scheduled for June 27-28 in New Brunswick, NJ. Attendees are invited to immerse themselves in scorecards and spend two days with a prominent cast of retailers, vendors and supply chain professionals to explore the effect of scorecards on their organizations' profitability. All attendees will take away key learning's about how scorecards contribute to the execution of corporate strategy, earnings per share and overall performance. Attendees will gain valuable knowledge that can be used to see if their companies are ready for this new dimension in retailer supplier management.

The thrust of the overall conference is to promote industry dialogue around scorecards. During this unique program, industry leaders will explore the implications of scorecards and work towards understanding how scorecards will evolve between trading partners. Build A Scorecard is a challenging, hands-on group learning exercise between retailers, vendors, and supply chain service providers as a means of training participants on best practices for scorecard design and implementation.

Attendees will hear from Mickey North Rizza from AMR Research, Kate Vitasek on the perfect order, Circuit City on its highly successful scorecard program, and a Kohl's panel discussion on the value of scorecards, along with others. According to Mark Jones, Co-Managing Director of the Vendor Compliance Federation, "The feedback we received from our last conference was that attendees enjoyed the interactive, hands-on learning experience and were able to return to their companies with ideas and practices that brought real value. The Nothing but SCORECARDS conference will offer attendees another valuable learning experience."

According to Greg Holder, CEO of Compliance Networks, "We are very proud of our partnership with VCF and its members, and are excited about the opportunity to share the value of scorecarding with the retailers and vendors in attendance at the Nothing but SCORECARDS conference. Scorecarding is an organic benefit of Compliance Networks's supply chain solutions, so it makes sense for VCF to partner with Compliance Networks to present the Nothing but SCORECARDS conference."

Compliance Networks will facilitate scorecard sessions and present valuable information on the linkage between corporate goals and vendor compliance deduction policies. More information about this event can be found at http://www.vendorscorecard.org/?072007PR.
