ISM to hold commercial challenge contest.

(Tempe, Ariz.) January 22, 2009 — Have you ever watched a commercial and thought to yourself, "I could write a commercial better than that!" Well, now you can when you participate in Institute for Supply Management™'s (ISM) Commercial Challenge.

The rules are simple. Just shoot a 30 to 60-second video that focuses on one aspect of ISM such as networking, training, continuing education or any of the other benefits of the association or ISM as whole, the choice is yours.

Once you've completed your commercial, log on to and click on the Submit Your Entry link. ISM members will vote for their favorite video. The stakes are high as the winner will receive a brand-new iPod nano and a trip to Charlotte, North Carolina for ISM's Annual Conference in May 2009, so give us your very best!

This contest is strictly for ISM members. If you have a great idea and are not a member, now is a great time to consider joining one of the premier professional organizations in the supply management field. As always, student membership is free.
