SCLAA Still Committed to Consolidation

The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia today stressed our continuing commitment to consolidation in supply chain and logistics professional associations despite the Logistics Association of Australia withdrawing from discussions.

SCLAA Chairman David Rogers said “We will enthusiastically pursue discussions with other associations while continuing to be optimistic that an agreement can be reached with the LAA at some time in the future.”

The SCLAA has been engaged in extensive discussions with the LAA but has not been able to reach agreement on a merger process. The issues are substantive and relate to the constitutional model that best suits all members’ interests and the representative nature of association activities nationally.

The SCLAA thanks its members and stakeholders for your continuing support for this process and assures all of its ongoing commitment on this issue to deliver best value.

“Anyone who has been involved in efforts to create, build, merge or restructure large national Associations will be well aware that these processes can be complex and take some time. This issue is not unique to our associations or to our industry.” Mr Rogers said.

“From our perspective, there remains continuing goodwill between the SCLAA and the LAA, which lays a good groundwork to re-commence negotiations at some time in the future. We thank the LAA Directors for their participation.

“In the meantime we have very good co-operation with the other SCL Associations in CILTA, APICS and CIPSA and will continue efforts on an event by event basis to generate additional value for the profession and practice that we serve.”

We are fortunate that SCLAA activities have continued to be strong during the negotiation process, a strength of the SCLAA model, and we thank our many volunteers for their ongoing and professional efforts.

The Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) is Australia’s strongest and most active member based association, serving and advancing the interests of Supply Chain and Logistics professionals and practitioners (SCL) in Australia.
