Marlena Salgado-Felix President, ISM-NVA
Happy Supply Management Month!
The month of March is dedicated to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions that Supply Management professionals make every day. During this month, ISM will recognize the profession with a variety of events, communications and proclamations. At ISM-NVA we support the contributions you make every day in your jobs by providing you with a platform to network and continue your professional development.
To coincide with Supply Management Month we have launched a Membership Drive to recruit colleagues from different companies, organizations, industries and related fields in the Washington Metropolitan Area. During the months of March and April we will conduct a campaign introducing ISM-NVA to key companies and inviting their employees to join our ranks. I would like to ask you to be part of this effort by reaching out to your peers and colleagues to introduce them to ISM-NVA and discuss the benefits of membership. We will award prizes to the top recruiters.
Check the Members Only section for details of the Membership Drive. If you have any questions about the membership recruitment effort, or need help accessing the Members Only section, please contact email@example.com.
Congratulations on being a Supply Management professional!
