Message from the ISM LA President
Greetings ISM-LA Members and potential New Members!
Welcome to the 2012-2013 term where ISM-LA has a terrific line up of guest speakers for our monthly Professional Development Seminars, fantastic networking opportunities, and CPSM/CSM training options. As a professional supply chain affiliation organization, our goal is to educate, develop, and advance our members and our profession. We attempt to do all this with enthusiasm and excitement! Above and beyond that, we truly try to make every event and gathering a fun and enjoyable time. As our past president, CJ Nord, has always said, "ISM-LA Members have More Fun!!"
As we move swiftly into this term, we do so with every intention of bringing more value to you and our affiliate organization. So, please join us at one of our next ISM-LA Seminars at the Holiday Inn in Torrance, CA (the first Thursday of each month - see the calendar on our website for our list of upcoming meetings). Be a part of this wonderful organization and expand your supply chain knowledge. Come meet our diverse group of members representing numerous business types in the LA area. We guarantee you'll have a wonderful time.
