Join CSCMP’s San Francisco (SF) Roundtable for our popular “Predictions’ event moderated by the dynamic Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group. Senior executives and supply chain leaders from Clorox, BevMo!, method home products and Move Loot will share point and counterpoint predictions with the now-familiar green and red ping pong paddles, while Carl facilitates dynamic audience interaction.

Event Chair and VP Programs, Katya Allison-Alfaro, is setting the bar for SF Roundtable’s 2015-2016 programming series, which promises meatier content, high value networking, and each time, an added dimension for more enjoyable networking.  For the Sept. 2nd season opener, at the beautiful Valencia Hotel on Santana Row, CSCMP SFRT will host an interactive wine aroma networking session in the outdoor courtyard to whet the palate.

Then we’ll move inside for dinner in a collegial setting, entertaining our panelists’ bold predictions, offering counterpoint and enjoying connection and learning within the SF Bay Area’s growing supply chain community.

Our Roundtable is committed to giving back.  A portion of proceeds from our Fall events will go to 1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds. Forty-one percent of Silicon Valley 3rd graders are reading below grade level and 46% of 8th graders are not proficient in Algebra, which is a gateway into high school level math.  1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds strives to address this challenge by recruiting caring adult volunteers to serve as tutors and mentors to K-10 students struggling in the core areas of reading, math and science.

In February 2007, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Guardino to a four-year term on the California Transportation Commission. He was reappointed by Governor Jerry Brown. He also serves on numerous other boards and is actively involved in a wide range of community organizations and projects. In 2000, the San Jose Mercury News named Guardino one of the “Five Most Powerful” people in Silicon Valley in a once-per-decade study.

Guardino also is on the boards of California Forward and the California League of Conservation Voters. Guardino was born and raised in San Jose and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from San Jose State University, where he is a Distinguished Alumnus.
