The ISM Conference Personal Planner allows you to create a Conference schedule tailored to your personal preferences. The Personal Planner lists all of the Conference events by date and time. Use your Personal Planner to organize the events you wish to attend, and even include your own personal appointments on the Planner.

Having great affiliate benefits is only one way to retain your membership ... another way is showing interest in and appreciation for your members.

ISM's 92nd Annual International Supply Management Conference and Educational Exhibit is May 6-9, 2007 at the Bally's Las Vegas Hotel in Las Vegas.
