3.     Review requests for advisory opinions; and

4.     Review ethics complaints and make recommendations to the Board  

Dr Pieter Nagel, CEO, ASCI, says ethics is at the heart of the very definition of being professional: “A disciplined group of individuals who adhere to ethical standards” making this committee vital to our long term goal within the ASCI Initiative to professionalise supply chain management.

“Amanda, in her various roles, has gained considerable experience with large global third party logistics providers specialising in strategic positioning and solution development through to program management and implementation of logistics systems and facilities.
