ISM-Dallas, Inc.

A Chapter of the Institute for Supply Management working together to advance the profession of supply management.

Dallas' Leading Supply Chain Management Professionals

Celebrating 100 Years!

On April 13, 1921, Robert Miers called to order the first organizational meeting with 25 practitioners. Now with over 500 members, ISM-Dallas is celebrating our centennial!

ISM—Dallas supports a CPO Advisor Board, a group of business leaders in our community. We sponsor a mentoring program with UTD students, and we continually work with our members to encourage them to seek CPSM® and CPSD® certifications.

We have upcoming events in May. Please see below for more information and we hope to see you there!

Currently we are arranging some upcoming seminars.

Highlights from the President

Our officers at ISM-Dallas will soon be changing.  Below is a list of our new incoming officers for the term 2022-2023.  Welcome them to their new positions and responsibilitities.

President - Mark Schoonover

Vice President - George Ellington

Education Chair - Brett McAlpine

Membership Chair - Shafir Moochikkal

Secretary - Mary Walker

Treasurer - Peter VanderLight

Many members do not realize the responsibility that comes with serving on the board.  The board meets every month except December.  They are expected to attend at least eight meetings per term.  These members are considered the executive board of the chapter. They are responsible for the finances and operations of our Chapter.

We are hoping to have one in-person meeting per quarter and would like to encourage you as a member to attend and support our Chapter.  This is an opportunity to meet old friends and new members.

Mary Walker, Chapter President
