I hope everyone enjoyed the last of their summer adventures as we move into the final quarter of the year. Autumn has arrived, and school is back in full gear. This is a great time of year to reassess your goals, both for learning and career aspirations. ISM offers many opportunities to help in both these key areas of development. Make sure you bookmark our new website as it has many tools to help you as you go about your day.
Be sure to join us for our October Breakfast meeting at the Olde Mill Inn/Grain House in Basking Ridge, NJ on October 6th. Professor Eric Larson of the Rutgers Business School will be discussing Millennials – Must I “Re-train to Retain?” We always engage in such thought-provoking discussions that early in the morning as the true professionals that we are.
Another October opportunity to participate in an ISM activity is our well received Women & Leadership Conference. This will be conducted on October 13th and 14th at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Conference Center in Florham Park, NJ. All are welcome!! Sign up now to be a part of this wonderful, engaging, and inspiring conference. The Keynote Presentation is “Thriving in the Gap: Dealing with the Reality while Building your Desired Future” with Karla Robertson. This, plus many other topics, is why this conference is a favorite and well attended each year.
Here’s to another great month of networking, learning, and building on our own successes. Stay connected to ISM through our many channels of communications: our website, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We are always available to assist you in navigating careers, projects, and networking. All you have to do is reach out. Your board members, as well as the rest of the membership, are here, anytime. Make sure you get a chance to get out and enjoy the autumn weather before it’s gone. And as always, thanks for being a part of this great organization!
