Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2019 ISM San Diego year. I wanted to keep you updated on some of the things we have been doing.

Since our last update, we  developed our 5 year strategic plan. It will steer our organization within its framework and ensure we remain relevant and responsive to the  needs of our members. We added 3 new members to the Board of Directors and have  re-aligned some of the positions to modernize and recognize the changing needs of the Chapter.

We continue to have numerous activities planned. Professional Development meetings,plant tours, Industry panels, career fairs, seminars, CPSM exam preparation, networking and social opportunities will provide something of value for everyone. We hope you will join us at some of these events.

We have rolled  out our new chapter website. It is more visually appealing, easier to navigate and provides a better overall user experience. We would love to hear your feedback! We are re-energizing our presence on social media. You will find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We are looking for  volunteers to fill open positions on the Board of Directors. Currently our open positions include Secretary and Director of Education/Career Development. You will find it a fun and rewarding experience 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
