WERC (www.werc.org) began as a grassroots effort in 1977, when a number of individuals from the distribution field came together in search of educational, research and networking opportunities in the field of warehousing. The idea of a warehousing organization originated with Bob Angel and Ken Ackerman, who have been referred to as the "fathers of WERC." On June 22, 1977, a group of 17 distribution professionals got together in Columbus, Ohio, to discuss the feasibility of organizing a new professional society for warehousing management. During a second planning meeting—held in Chicago, Ill., on August 24, 1977—WERC was born. The purposes of the organization were defined and the association’s name was selected.
