ISM-Nebraska mission statement...

The ISM Supply Chain Risk Management Group will provide ISM members professional education opportunities and risk management information, and support expansion of the body of risk management knowledge to enhance personal professional development and success in professional supply management activities.


I wanted to share the above mission statement with you.  You may have never seen it before.  Every month, we try to focus on how we can meet this challenge by:

Building of our profession

We continue to aide our local college students with Scholarship programs, like the awards we will be presenting next week.  Also, we have a trained certified ISM instructor to work with our local membership for certification at a reasonable cost. See more...

Providing education

Being able to bring in nationally known seminar speakers & provide professional development programs at a reasonable cost and less the travel expense.

Provide service to you

ISM National is great and they have resources we can tap from.  But, they are national (out of Arizona).  You can contact ISM-NE & we could provide a tailored topic or need for you or your group.


Help us to help you...  we need your input.  You can do this by email ([email protected]) or become involved with the board (contact me or any of our board members).  We are interested in ways that best serve it's local members.  We believe in NEBRASKA STRONG
