And the Year has been Kicked Off!

Like all great years, this one started off at a winery. At Times Ten Cellars in Dallas we met some new people, swapped stories, and prepped for the coming year. Of course there were plenty of hipsters trying to get into the reserved room full of the cool NCMA people, but this was for Contracts and Supply Chain only!
