The 2001-02 ISM Board of Directors Meeting and the Annual Meeting of the Members of the Institute for Supply Management, Inc.™ were held on January 17, 2002, at ISM National Headquarters in Tempe, Arizona.
Below is the list of ISM seminars for the months of April and May 2002. For seminar details, please refer to inserts published in Inside Supply Management™; call the ISM Customer Service Department at 800/888-6276 or 480/752-6276, extension 401; or log on to the ISM Web site (www.ism.ws) and select the Seminars and Online Learning link.
With the name change to Institute for Supply Management™, we wanted to find a URL that would be easy for everyone to remember. The natural choice would be ism.org, but we found quite an interesting trail once we tried to secure a new URL nearly two years ago.
C.P.M. and A.P.P. News
Affiliates are reminded to take advantage of ISM’s program to document Continuing Education Hours. It is a simple process: affiliates complete a Continuing Education Hours (CEH) Documentation Request Form four to six weeks prior to a seminar (or other educational event) and return it to ISM. ISM will review the information to make certain the program subject matter is eligible for continuing education (for the C.P.M. and A.P.P. programs). If eligible, ISM will assign a program number and return the completed form, along with a log sheet and recommended Achievement Award forms. The person responsible for the program will then complete an Achievement Award form for each attendee and send a roster of attendees to ISM. The attendee submits the Achievement Award form when applying for C.P.M. recertification or A.P.P. reaccreditation.
Volunteer Appreciation and Management
Recognition for work well done motivates and inspires most people, but it is absolutely essential for volunteers. Rewards for volunteers do not come in the form of monetary compensation. And while money is important, what tends to motivate people to perform — and to perform at higher levels — is the thoughtful, personal kind of recognition that signifies true appreciation for a job well done.
