Spread the Word - Sharing the Value of Supply Management
The Mission of ISM is "to lead supply management."
The ISM Resource Center has completed updating the ISM Resource Guides. What are Resource Guides? The ISM Resource Guides are topic-specific electronic "packets of information" on a number of supply management subjects. Each guide includes 5-10 articles from various ISM publications, articles from non-ISM publications, suggested reading lists, valuable links to related Web sites and contact information for a variety of other resources and information on the topic. ISM's Resource Guides deliver specific information on the topics you are most interested in — right to your computer desktop.

ISM Headquarters will be closed on Monday, February 21, 2005, in observance of President's Day. We will reopen on Tuesday, February 22, 2005.
