David Nelson, C.P.M., A.P.P., accepted his profession's highest honor at Institute for Supply Management's™ (ISM) 91st Annual International Supply Management Conference and Educational Exhibit. Nelson accepted the J. Shipman Gold Medal Award in Minneapolis in recognition of modest, unselfish, sincere and persistent efforts for the advancement of supply management.

Like all J. Shipman Gold Medal Award winners, Nelson exemplifies a multi-faceted approach to supply management, not simply excellence in a single aspect of the profession. "I've been extremely fortunate to be part of the leveling up of supply management, with all its disciplines, to advance the profession and gain competitive advantage for my employers," he says.

This Month in the Inside Supply Management® Magazine

In today's business world, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is not merely an ethical safeguard, it's the law. And while compliance means accounting for tangible financial assets, it also extends to intangible assets such as trade secrets. The May issue of Inside Supply Management® magazine discusses where trade secret assets fall within the purview of SOX requirements and details the necessary steps to implement a system that identifies and classifies trade secret assets and places a value on them.

In the May issue you'll also find articles on:

  • ISM's Salary Survey
  • E-purchasing systems
  • Assessing business opportunities in China
  • Matching leadership with an evolving profession
  • And much more!
