History and Background
PMA—Central Florida, once a chapter of PMA Florida, was chartered in 1978. Incorporation took place in the State of Florida in 1980. NAPM—Central Florida began with 80 members. In 2004, the chapter was approved to be renamed ISM—Central Florida.
Over the years, the chapter has made strategic adjustments to its plans and programs to serve the membership and adapt to the changing environment and challenges of the expanding procurement and supply management profession.
The chapter has been proud to host the District VII Conference twice, once in 1990 and again in 1999. Through the dedication of our leadership and superb volunteerism demonstrated by our membership, we served as host to the ISM Conference in 1992, 2001, and 2011.
