As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.” At ISM-OC, we embrace this concept. Our Leaders are born from our membership, appointed by peers, and trust in the knowledge that anything they ask of another, they are willing to do themselves. Whether that includes volunteering for committees, mentoring others, or acting as liaisons to other organizations, our leaders are those who lead by example, and believe in what they can accomplish.
Our Board of Directors is comprised of members who are selected by the membership. The Board appoints the Executive Board, and Committee Chairs. These amazing volunteers bring varied backgrounds, experience, and knowledge to the table. Among this group, we have Supply Management specialists working from the Aerospace industry to the nonprofit arenas. Education is a huge rainbow of sources, our members possess designations that include C.P.M., CPSM, MBA, B.A., B.S., and good old-fashioned know how, and bring with them up to 50 years of experience.
When looking at the big picture, and with all that ISM-OC has to offer, our success is limitless. As we continue to grow our members, we will continue to create leaders from our ranks, and to inspire greatness without limitations. We believe in the power of positive thinking, and the ability in those in whom we entrust our care.
