Welcome to ISM-Arizona's new website! 

The last couple of years have been an unprecedented time for our chapter. We've successfully transitioned from in-person meetings to a virtual presence.  The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we look forward to an exciting slate of events for the 2021-22 year. 

In case you missed it, ISM-Arizona was featured in July's Inside Supply Management magazine.  

Additionally, I'm happy to announce we've partnered with ISM-New Jersey to provide webinars and CEH opportunities at no cost to current ISM-Arizona members.  These webinars will start August 11 and cover various Sourcing and Supply Chain topics.

Along with our outstanding Board of Directors, I'm looking forward to the coming year.  It wouldn't be possible without your continued support and membership.
