    Annual Certification News
    On May 20, 1927, Charles Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Airfield in Long Island, New York, in his Spirit of St. Louis airplane and made a successful touchdown almost 34 hours later at the Le Bourget Aerodrome in Paris, France. This was the first nonstop solo trans-Atlantic flight and was also the first nonstop flight from New York to Paris. Since then, the Spirit of St. Louis has come to represent the vision and dedication needed for great achievements. The Spirit of St. Louis continues today at the ISM 93rd Annual International Supply Management Conference on May 4-7, 2008 in St. Louis, where the Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM) qualification will officially take off.
