The 2003-04 Board of Directors of the Institute for Supply Management™ has approved a new strategic plan at its recent meeting on May 17, 2003, in Nashville, Tennessee. The new strategic plan includes a modification to ISM's Mission:
C.P.M. and A.P.P. News
Did you know that some colleges and universities award college credit for completion of the C.P.M. Exam? ISM has had the former and updated C.P.M. programs, and the new A.P.P. program, reviewed by the New York Board of Regents Program on Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction (NYBOR PONSI). The outcome of the review of the C.P.M. program through 2000 was a recommendation that colleges and universities consider awarding college credit to those who have passed the C.P.M. Exam. Those seeking college credit should carefully review the recommendation from the New York Board of Regents Program on Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction relating to the period in which the candidate tested. Remember that the review provides a recommendation, so colleges and universities have the option to award credit based on some or all of the recommendation.

The 2003-04 ISM Board of Directors met just prior to the 88th Annual International Supply Management Conference on Saturday, May 17, 2003, in Nashville, Tennessee.
