Governance

CCALS: Empowering you through world class logistics

Direction and Guidance

Organizing University Members and Organizing Industry Members have the right to designate a representative on the Board of Directors, the Industrial Operations Board (IOB) and the Technical Advisory Council (TAC).

CCALS is operated by a Board of Directors that provides oversight, elects officers, approves budgets, establishes operational policies and bylaws, and has overall oversight over the corporation.

The IOB and the TAC determine the research road map and provide direction and review on projects as well as strategic overview on intellectual property policy.

Let's get started

CCALS offers its partners a unique advantage: World class logistics research and resources.
