President's Message

It's June and ISM-Philadelphia has some exciting news to share with our membership. We have just launched a new redesigned ISM-Philadelphia website! The site is more user friendly and offers easier navigation tools. It will continue to be upgraded and improved as it is aimed at becoming THE resource portal for our supply-chain professionals. A big thanks goes out to board director and incoming 2nd VP, Dave Panzera for his leadership in getting our new redesigned site up and to all the contributors who helped with the content. Kudos team! 

Congrats also goes out to our newly elected incoming board! Jim, Lesley, Tom M., Lillian, Regina, Evan, Tiffany, Dave, Tom G. and Ron. I know that my colleague and friend--incoming President Ron Heere will serve you and our organization well as he takes the helm for the new 2014 -2015 board year.
