Summer Leadership Training Workshops are tailored specifically for the leadership of ISM affiliates. These workshops offer invaluable networking opportunities as well as sessions addressing both the tactical and strategic training necessary to run a successful affiliate.
Spread the Word — Sharing the Value of Supply Management
The business world reads about and hears about supply management.
Whether you are testing onsite or at a Prometric test center, you must show one valid photo I.D. with signature that matches the name on your ISM exam registration. Exam proctors are instructed to turn away any candidate who does not have proper I.D.
ISM invites you to submit a proposal to present a workshop at its 2007 Annual International Supply Management™ Conference, May 6-9, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Share your knowledge, ideas, success and insight with the profession. Motivate your colleagues to reach new heights. Inspire newcomers to embrace the profession.
Previously managed outside the supply organization, more and more supply managers are responsible for the purchase of travel, energy and other services. ISM's June 8, 2006 satellite seminar, "Buying Travel, Energy and Other Services," explores the role of supply managers in the services spend. Knowledge of each unique service area is critical for supply's successful contribution. Attend this satellite seminar to find out how you can become proactive in demonstrating your knowledge using sound supply management strategies. As they become available, additional details on this program will be posted on the ISM Web site at www.ism.ws/Seminars/SatSems/satsemBuyingTravel.cfm.
