Amazon Fulfillment Center Tour

TIAA has tried for months to take a tour and see the magic that happens after you click “buy” on Amazon. We’ve heard it is a marvel of technology and logistics that needs to be seen to be appreciated so it should be worth the wait.   The 60-minute guided walking tour of this million square foot facility dictates that everyone wear comfortable, flat, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes. If you need special accessibility accommodations, please let us know as Amazon promises to help! Our tour will begin with a short video describing the facility then we will be given wireless earphones to allow our guide to speak to all of us.  This should let everyone hear the presentation without any trouble.  It shows how Amazon processes customer orders and how Amazon manages their full time staff so that they work efficiently and safely.  We will leave at 11:00 am, eat lunch (on your own) at __________________, take the 2:00 tour and return about 4:00.  Cost will be $_____ for members and $____ for nonmembers.  Please register early as the tour is limited.
