Message from the ISM LA Past President and Trustee
ISM LA’s Mission is to educate, develop, and advance the purchasing and supply management profession, by providing opportunities to network, enhance our professional skills, and increase the knowledge of our membership.
Now that we have stated our lofty goal I’m going to let you in on a secret…ISM LA members have more fun. We have more fun at our jobs, more fun at meetings, and more fun learning.
