Regular Membership includes membership with, and benefits from, both ISM and your choice of one of 150+ affiliated organizations. ISM's affiliates offer benefits that include volunteer and leadership opportunities, professional development opportunities, valuable contacts with your peers including local networking, educational events to keep you current on supply management topics and trends, certification preparation and opportunities to accrue CEHs for recertification while taking advantage of affiliate member pricing. While most people select an affiliated organization based on their location, non-geographic, industry-based affiliates are available as well. This category of membership is by far the most popular option, comprising 85% of our total membership. Affiliate organizations include geographic location and non-geographic choices as listed below.
If you are a full-time student or academician, you may qualify for dues free membership.
