Whether your recovery is in full swing or just in the planning stages, this year's Summit has something for everyone. A healthy supply chain is an integral part of the recovery.

Use this program to find out what your colleagues have done and what they are doing to gear up for 2010 and beyond.

Don't miss this opportunity to network and learn from some great supply management professionals. This is a chance to roll up your sleeves and find out what other organizations are doing to get ahead. Glean skills and gather tools to boost your career and your organization. Look for sessions that address risk, recovery and developing a personal plan for success. Be sure to attend the panel discussion and gain some top-level perspectives.

  • Don't miss this great learning (and networking) experience.
  • Learn from others who are passionate about supply management.
  • Start building your supply management community.
  • Take time out of your busy schedule to strengthen your supply chain and your career!
New This Year

The ISM Women Executive Supply Management Summit is at the same time and same location as the Hispanic Supply Management Summit and the Black Executive Supply Management Summit. Each summit has its own set of workshops, but general sessions are together. This gives you the added benefit of networking time with your colleagues attending the other summits. We hope you enjoy the new format for the program.

This program is presented for women executives, their direct reports and those interested in building their career in supply management. Supply management professionals from all industries and organizations will benefit from these sessions. If you have a passion for supply management and want to network and learn from those sharing your interest, you won't want to miss this program.

In principle and in practice, ISM values and seeks a diverse membership, volunteer leadership and staff. There are no barriers to full participation in the Institute on the basis of ethnic background, gender, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability.
