TORONTO, Ont.–On November 20th, 2014 the CITT Toronto Area Council elected by acclamation its new executive council for the year 2015.
The Toronto Area Council is a team of volunteers dedicated to enhancing the experience of CITT members in the Greater Toronto Area through interactive tours, and networking and educational events that help augment CITT’s core curriculum.
The networking at TAC events allows for an exchange of expertise and ideas. Members can connect with colleagues to discuss new service offerings and strategies to deal with the ever changing challenges faced by supply chain and logistics professionals.
Returning for another term on the council are:
Chair: Tom Pauls, CCLP, Senior Recruitment Consultant at Stoakley-Stewart Consultants Ltd;
Vice-Chair: Denise Ponte, CCLP, Logistics Coordinator at Effective Logistical Solutions;
Secretary: Sal Ali, CCLP, Agent Pricing Coordinator at ITN Logistics;

New to the TAC Executive Team are:
Treasurer: Michael Upwood, CCLP, Manager of National Accounts at Fastfrate.
Events Chair: Michael Zhiltsoff, Logistics Coordinator at 3PL Links Inc.
Leaving the council are James Nguyen, CCLP and Le Luong, both of whom are now heavily involved in the Vietnamese Association, Toronto, a non-profit and charitable organization.
2014 was a great year for the Toronto Area Council, with a total of 22 events held and new attendance records established. On November 17th, 2014 TAC turned 50. Going into 2015 the Toronto Area Council will be celebrating 50 years in existence; quite a milestone for a not-for-profit and volunteer run association, TAC noted.
