Executive Director's Message

After almost thirty years of involvement in purchasing and with ISM-Fort Worth, I am not going to allow the association to simply dissolve.  There are opportunities for a new generation of Supply Chain Management professionals to serve and lead.  I can personally testify that volunteering helps individuals build confidence, develop patience, and understand how to work with other professionals in a team environment.  Even though there is a perception that over the past few years interest in profesional associations has dwindled, the Supply Chain Management profession is booming and opportunities for leadership in volunteer organizations should be considered critical to careers.  

To put it bluntly, we need YOU to take the challenge of helping us lead the association.  I would like to talk with anyone who might be interested in discussing how they can best support the association.  We have several tasks that have been broken down so as not to overload anyone with too much responsibility.  Volunteering should be about learning and allowing each person to gain a sense of success. 

Feel free to contact me at 972-603-9233.  I'll be more than willing to discuss YOUR best fit in working with ISM-Fort Worth.

Thank you,

Steve Ballenger, CPSM
