BVL flags flying

BVL has held events in such far-flung locales as Bratislava, Dubai, and Rio de Janeiro.

 

 News of interest from The Business Journal:

“BVL International, a German-based global supply chain and logistics organization with more than 10,000 members, is establishing its first North American chapter in Greensboro, with plans to hold the group’s inaugural event on Aug. 12 at the headquarters of Volvo Group North America.

“The move by BVL to create the chapter in the Gate City is not only a recognition of the area as a supply chain hub but also a move to expand the organization’s footprint into North America. The organization will showcase the innovations of private sector companies such as Volvo but also highlight local assets such as the N.C. Center for Global Logistics and N.C. A&T State University.”

Two items from the local news media worth noting:

“Some early college students whose experiment will be sent into space got a surprise bonus for their work.

“Six STEM Early College at N.C. A&T students were chosen to send a science experiment to the International Space Station (ISS). As an added bonus on Monday, Guilford County Schools Superintendent Mo Green and NC A&T’s Chancellor, Dr. Harold Martin, presented the students with their own lab coats.”

“Students, professors, alumni and neighbors of N.C. A&T had a word Monday evening for the proposed Florida Street project across part of the school’s 492-acre farm.

“’No.’

“No way should the road be extended from East Lee Street through the new Gateway University Research Center and across part of the A&T farm, an audience of several hundred turned out to say emphatically.”
