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.

Current Activity by ISM-Philadelphia


There are nearly 900,000 people in the Delaware Valley facing hunger each day. To combat these issues, organizations such as Philabundance provide food to approximately 72,000 people per week through a network of nearly 500 member agencies, direct neighborhood distribution programs and food acquisition programs. On August 16, 2014, members of the Institute of Supply Management Philadelphia (or ISM-Philadelphia) volunteered at Philabundance main office and hunger relief center.

ISM continued to put the people first and to improve lives in the hours spent at Philabundance, sorting and packaging food, cleaning and discarding trash. Working alongside Philabundance staff, ISM volunteers gained the opportunity to see how their efforts would directly impact those in need across the region. Working in frigid temperatures to sort fresh peppters, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers and more, the day of selflessness for our members, friends and families had a huge impact on others in need. Members of ISM-Philadelphia were able to process over 7700 pounds of produce. 

For organizations like ISM-Philadelphia, volunteerism is of the utmost importance. Volunteerism is a way in which organizations invest int he communities and individual they serve, and is also a wonderful way of saying thank you.
