Marlena Salgado-Felix President, ISM-NVA
Our Affiliate is starting this fiscal year with a new cadre of elected Board members. Please take an opportunity to meet them during one of our upcoming educational events in October and November. This enthusiastic group of professionals will lead us for the 2015-2016 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.
