Professional Profile Development Exchange
Profile Development Exchange
One of the many benefits of ISM membership is the networking and educational opportunities that our local affiliate provide. Our February 9th meeting will showcase the accumulated knowledge and experience of our members. We have arranged for ISM-CB members like you, to share their experiences in supply chain. The program goal is to help everyone become more familiar with the wide variety of supply-chain challenges facing individuals who make up our organization. This will be a collaborative discussion on topics of interest that affect us all so that we can draw on our similarities and help our understanding of what resources other members may provide.
