ISM-NJ Executive Message

Happy New Year!

May 2018 be a year of health happiness and continued success.

It may be a new year calendar wise, but for ISM – NJ we are half way through our year.

This is a great time to consider where you are and where you would like to be.

What will be your focus or goal in 2018?

Everyone needs at least one as this is the road for continuous improvement!

Change is a constant and if you do not move, you will be left behind.

Is there a new skill you need in your career toolbox?

Would you like to engage with your supply management colleagues more in order to feel the pulse of the market?

Do you want to energize your activities?

Some suggestions:

  • January Membership Meeting on Jan 10th – Who will be there to network with?
  • Seminar – Supplier Relationship Management Fundamentals workshop (Jan. 11th) or Webinar – Strategic Sourcing Methodology – Is this a skill set you need in your current position or a tool that you need to  sharpen?
  • ISM is energizing the CPSM Exam – there will be an update to the CPSM Exam in the Fall, 2018.  The last day to take the exams with the current criteria is August 31, 2018.  ISM – NJ  has scheduled a webcast of CPSM Exam 2 Review – Do you want to complete the review and certify before the changes are updated?

These are only some of the activities ISM – NJ has scheduled.  Please look at our calendar as our goal is to keep you informed and continually keeping you at the top of your game!  If you have a specific topic of interest that we have not offered in the past, please let us know.  We love to receive your feedback so we can serve you better.

Again, may 2018 be a great year for you!
