I recently returned from one of our Summer Leadership Training Workshops (more on this later). I was asked several times if ISM was going to merge with APICS. The short answer is that we had a meeting with APICS' president-elect at our Conference in San Francisco in 2002 and discussed this. The result was that the boards of directors of both associations discussed the topic at one of their meetings and rated their interest. Basically, ISM was interested and APICS was much less interested so no further action has been taken.
