In This Issue
In early December, you received in the mail the 2005 Proxy for the Annual Meeting of Members of the Institute for Supply Management, Inc.™ (ISM). You are being asked to vote on the election of ISM Board members and proposed changes to the Institute's Bylaws. The report of the vote and other business of the organization will be made at the ISM Annual Membership Meeting that will be held on Thursday, January 13, 2005, at 11:30 a.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST) at the national headquarters of ISM at 2055 E. Centennial Circle, Tempe, Arizona.
Purpose: The purpose of the ISM Persons of the Year Awards is to honor members who go beyond the regular scope of work to make outstanding contributions to ISM and the profession.
There is an area on the ISM Web site that features scholarships offered by ISM affiliates, Groups and Forums. Currently, over 35 scholarships are listed. If your affiliate/Group/Forum offers a scholarship, now's a good time to have ISM list it on its Web site. There's no charge to list your scholarship information.
C.P.M. and A.P.P. News
Whether or not to become an ISM member will most likely be the easiest question you face through the C.P.M. or A.P.P. process. ISM members enjoy substantial savings, including discounts on all exam registrations, study materials, review classes, seminars, conferences, online learning, and application fees.
Spread the Word - Sharing the Value of Supply Management
ISM has redesigned the media room area of the ISM Web site: www.ism.ws/AboutISM/MediaRoom/Index.cfm.
Your attendance is requested at the ISM Annual Membership Meeting. Please plan to join us for a report on institute business including the election of the ISM Board of Directors and other matters as stated in the Proxy dated December 1, 2004.
January 31, 2005, is the deadline for the 2005 Shipman nominations. For more information or for instructions and nomination forms, please contact Judy Waters at ISM, 800/888-6276, extension 3034, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
