The goal of this council is to provide all members an awareness and education of issues affecting the supply chain. They strive to increase supply chain efficiency by reducing redundancy in the channel and building trust through partners’ communication, electronic technologies, and e-business.

Sometimes HARDI’s Supply Chain & Operations team needs the assistance of HARDI Council members. We ask that all of HARDI’s Council members make it a priority to contribute when these issues arise.

The Supply Chain & Operations Council is also responsible for guiding relevant content development for the Supply Chain & Operations Focus Conference, the Annual Conference, and potentially the Emerging Leaders programs with the mission of constant improvement, innovation, and excellence within the HVACR supply chain.
