Welcome Back!  We’ve Missed You!

We know the past few years have been a little tough, well, more like a LOT tough!  But, who wants to think about the past?  Let’s start thinking about the future!!  ISM-Central Florida is back in action and I am proud to announce that I’ve taken on the role of President.  We have a new energy, a new board, and a bunch of new ideas to encourage the chapter to get back in the swing of things!  Most recently, ISM World was held here in Orlando, which drew a lot of attention not only to the Orlando area, but on our chapter’s resurgence.  We have an amazing amount of support from ISM Global to make sure we are more successful than we’ve ever been.  We’ve learned during the past few years how to maneuver the virtual world, so we expect to continue using those tools in order to expand our reach throughout Central Florida and on to both coasts.  We are planning webinars, educational experiences, & networking activities to promote the growth of our region, as we have finally emerged as a critical role to any organization rather than a roadblock.  Everyone needs their toilet paper, right?! 

In addition, I would like to introduce your ISM-Central Florida Board Members, effective July 1, 2022.  Please congratulate this group of individuals for stepping up and taking on this exciting effort to make us the best chapter in ISM!
