Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2018-19 ISM San Diego year! I am honored and excited to serve as your President in one of California’s largest chapters.

We have numerous activities planned for the upcoming year. Professional Development meetings, educational classes, CPSM exam preparation, webinars, networking and social opportunities will provide something of value for everyone. Your Board of Directors will develop our five-year strategic plan. This plan, compiled by input from board members, feedback from member surveys and comparative analysis, will steer our organization and ensure we remain  relevant and competitive through 2023.

We will soon roll out our new chapter website. It will be more visually appealing, easier to navigate and provide a better overall user experience. We would love to hear your feedback!.

Finally, we want to encourage volunteer engagement  as a priority for our organization.  Our goal is to provide a rewarding experience for volunteers while setting up the organization for future success.

To that end, we are looking for 3-4 volunteers to fill open positions on the Board of Directors. You will find it fun and rewarding and not a large time commitment monthly. You can also earn CEH’s for your service. Volunteering provides the opportunity to either enhance a current skill or safely learn new ones. By donating your time and efforts to ISM San Diego, you better our organization and our industry. Interested in making an impact? Contact us at ISM@ismsd.org

Sincerely,

Pam Murray C.P.M., CPHS, B.A.

President, ISM San Diego
