We suggest you not just look at ISMGB from the outside; why not become a member and be a part of the organization on the inside. Membership offers privileges, resources, and opportunities for professional development through education, networking and the sharing of knowledge through programs such as membership meetings, seminars and workshops and volunteer participation. In addition we have a combined membership with the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) that allows you take advantage of all the services, literature, research, certification and training that they offer. Come on board!

Your ISMGB membership entitles you to:

  • Member meetings and events in the Greater Boston area.
  • The Regional Business Survey, an economic forecasting tool that mirrors the ISM Purchasing Managers Index, but limits its inquiry to companies in the greater Boston area.
  • The Membership Directory lists members and can be sorted by first name, last name, company or country.
  • The LinkedIn ISMGB Group offers subscribers a network of experts with whom to share information and professional expertise.
  • Resources such as the Supply Blog for answers to questions on supply issues, techniques or problems.
  • Work-related Purchasing/Business Web Sites and a comprehensive list of web resources to help you leverage the web in your day to day business.
  • Career-related Web Sites to provide assistance in career planning.
  • The Library with archived membership meeting presentations.
  • Annual membership meetings providing educational programs on current professional trends and techniques and interaction with colleagues.
  • A broad selection of seminars and workshops prepare you for professional certification and provide continuing professional growth.
  • The Job List offers ISMGB members an effective recruitment and job search resource. It describes briefly the qualifications, requirements and contact information for open positions posted with the Association.
  • Volunteer activities offer members an opportunity to develop planning and management skills in an comfortable setting as well as providing the satisfaction of contributing to their profession.

 

ISMGB is an affiliate of ISM. We serve the same mission and tailor to the local Greater Boston community. Members have a choice of belonging to both ISM and ISMGB, or just one or the other.
