Marlena Salgado-Felix President, ISM-NVA
Our Affiliate started the fiscal year with a new cadre of elected Board members. Please take an opportunity to meet them during one of our upcoming educational events. This enthusiastic group of professionals will lead us for the 2016-2017 year. But we all know that they cannot do it all alone so I would like to encourage you to volunteer to join a committee. Your support will help us develop a strong educational program featuring leading procurement related topics, host networking opportunities in creative venues and participate in projects to help the local communities. The opportunities and the rewards are many so reach out and contact a Board member today.

Touring Leesburg's Vanish Brewery
ISM recently had the chance to tour one of Northern Virginia's local breweries just north of Leesburg. Members took in the beautiful Loudon County scenery while learning about the operation's supply chain and the state's burgeoning brewing industry. Most importantly we had the chance to sample several of Vanish's excellent beverage offerings!
