ISM has gotten me where I am at today in my successful and satisfying career in Supply Chain Management. I really enjoy the continued education and networking through my ISM-Portland/Vancouver Affiliate.    

Paulette Morris, Georgia-Pacific

Being a member of ISM has allowed me to meet a number of members, build my networking ability, and has kept me actively involved and contributing to our local affiliate – ISM-Portland/Vancouver. Achieving my C.P.M. credential through ISM and serving on the Board of Directors and as President of our affiliate, has provided greater depth on my resume and aided me in achieving a great career in Supply Chain Management.

Cathy Wannamaker, Clark PUD

I have been a member of ISM for 20 plus years and have achieved Certified Purchasing Manager designations in both Boston and Oregon locations. As a result, it helped showcase my career credentials when I moved from the East Coast to the West Coast in 1996 and helped me find a rewarding and challenging position here in the Pacific Northwest.
