Year End Message from
ISM Central Ohio President Shane Gil
Another season has come to an end for ISM-Central Ohio, as we look forward to exciting events and opportunities to come. 2015 marked the 100th Anniversary of ISM (formerly NAPM) in Central Ohio, and we are pleased that it remains a vital professional organization in the region. The planning for 2016-2017 has already begun, and will be finalized over the summer. We greatly appreciate the input and requests from our members, allowing for programs that are relevant, motivating and educational to those in the supply management profession.
I want to thank everyone who helped with our last session. Many thanks to the Board Members who stepped in and helped with our ‘Interim Leadership Team’ over the past year, and to the several new Board Members who have brought an additional infusion of enthusiasm to our affiliate during that time. We were able to have Officers in place, and ample time for the required mentoring and the transition of roles and responsibilities, anticipating the new Officers’ confident leadership for the 2016-2017 season and beyond. Past President Holly Miller-Downour and I will be leaving the Board as our terms expire, but will of course remain available to assist and advise as needed. Click here to read entire article.
