A Message from
Judy Pines - President ISM-NVA
Dear Members and Colleagues,
Welcome to ISM-NVA!
It is an honor and a privilege to be serving as the ISM-NVA President for the 2018-2019 term. Congratulations to each of our Board of Directors who were installed at our Annual Dinner. And a big thank you to our volunteers who were also recognized for their support and vested interest in the affiliate.
Our mission is to educate, develop and advance the purchasing and supply management profession, by providing opportunities to network, enhance professional skills, and increase the knowledge of our membership.
Affiliate membership covers Northern VA, Maryland and Washington DC which allows us to be flexible with meeting venues so we are close to your work or home location at least part of the time.
We would love to learn more about your interests and encourage you to reach out to me or one of our board members with suggestions for educational events, speakers, or to explore volunteer opportunities.
Hope to see you at our next event!
