The Logistics Management Council was founded in 1983 by Lori S. Nickels and Dr. Robert
Lorin Cook to provide a vehicle for learning experiences in logistics management which will
result in: (1) students gaining a better understanding of the logistics process; and (2) an
increasing dialogue between professionals and students who are interested in improving
logistics theory and practice.


Membership is by invitation only. Prospective members must be at least a second term
sophomore at the time of initiation. Members are selected on the basis of academic
performance, previous work experience, demonstrated leadership and a willingness to
participate in LMC activities. Membership is not denied because of religion, race, color,
national origin, age, sex, marital status, veteran status, and/or handicap.


A faculty advisor and an executive board of officers direct the activities of the organization.
Most members are involved in multiple organizations, part-time employment and have full
academic schedules. LMC fully funds its activities through corporate donations.
