What past attendees have said about RLA Seminars...

"The RLA Seminars are awesome. The sessions are informative and I learned a lot. I specifically liked the networking aspect of the seminar which will continue to pay dividends."
Christopher Thompson, Reverse Logistics Project Manager, Colgate-Palmolive

"This was one of the most interactive seminars I have ever attended. The audience at the Memphis seminar were not afraid to ask the tough questions and get down to the real tactical issues facing reverse logistics professionals. I gained real insight to issues that I would not have thought about if I had not attended this event."
Mike Shelor, President and Chief Operating Officer, Patton Consultants
