Executive Board's Message

As I write this, I realize that this is the last month I will be President of ISM-Philadelphia.  I look back and it is unbelievable how time has flown by.  We continue to provide monthly dinner meetings and networking events as these are our core programs.  This year was the last year in our three year strategy and we are now going to be starting a new three year strategy over the summer.  I will continue to be on the board as your Past President over the next year; and we look forward to bringing you some great topics for next year in Category Management.

With that being said, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped in planning next year’s Programs – especially, Patty Bowman. She has worked very hard and diligent over the last 10 months and we could not have done it without her.  Thank You!

Our membership survey was extended through May 31st!  We hope you had the chance to make your voice heard.  It is important for us to get feedback on what you think we are doing right and what we can do better.  We will be publishing results this month.

Our new board will be installed this month at our June 8th Dinner Meeting.  We hope you can come out and enjoy the comradery and our “Supply Chain Jeopardy” game.  Congratulations and welcome to the new board members.  We look forward to working with you over the next year.
We hope all of you enjoy your summer as the board continues to work on bringing you educational and training opportunities for you – our members.

Regards,
