This Is Supply ManagementPosted: May 6, 2012
ISM’s 97th Annual International Conference and Educational Exhibit opened this afternoon with brief introductions from several supply management professionals describing what supply management is in their organizations. Testimonials came from supply professionals in a variety of industries including Harry & David, Pfizer, ConAgra Foods and American Red Cross. It was a fitting opening to ISM’s Conference. Sidney Johnson, CPSM, chair of ISM’s Board of Directors, then welcomed attendees to the Conference and the city of Baltimore, before bringing out Wolf Blitzer, the anchor of CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” for the opening session keynote address.
