ISM-National has just announced an update on the ISM International Conference
It’s no secret that without our affiliates, ISM would not be the world-class organization it is. With that in mind, we have been looking for a way to increase participation at ISM2014, while supporting our affiliates.
So we found a solution. Starting March 1st and continuing through April 15th, any affiliate member who registers for ISM2014, using the affiliate three digit code (our code is 226), will trigger a $140 donation to your affiliate – that’s about 10% of the registration fee! These funds can be used to increase affiliate participation throughout the year or as your board sees fit.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Jan Miller, Vice President of Membership, with any questions. Jan can be reached at 800/888-6276, extension 3113 or email@example.com.
