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 400 members, ISMDallas has celebrated our centennial year.

ISM—Dallas supports a CPO Advisory 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.


Take advantage of webinars to build up CEHs for recertification.

ISM—Dallas has partnered with ProPurchaser.  Check out special webinars on their website.


Plans are being made for an MWBE diversity meeting on September 29th at Brookhaven Country Club.  

Your participation is needed to make this meeting successful.
