The ISM Board of Directors has approved a recommendation to continue offering ISM Trial Membership to prospective members. An analysis of the results of the program indicates that the Trial Membership program is an effective way to introduce the benefits of the association to supply management professionals who may not have accepted traditional membership offers on a dues-paying basis. Since the program was first offered in September 2000, over 1,000 supply management professionals have become dues-paying Regular Members after accepting the Trial Membership offer. In addition, the Trial Membership program has brought increased exposure to the profession and the association as a greater number of professionals are introduced to the benefits of ISM membership.
