The “Holiday Rush” is quickly approaching. From now until the end of the year, the days will pass in a blur filled with work, holiday events and visits with family and friends. May I suggest that you take time each day to pause and reflect on the blessings you have received throughout the year and contemplate what personal changes you can make in 2014 to bring more joy to your life.
We have a number of ISM-Houston activities scheduled for November which includes events sponsored by Career Services, Mentoring and the Emerging Professionals Group. Our November 12th General Dinner Meeting will feature Frank Henry (Revenew International) who will speak on the topic of “Risk Management from a Contracting Perspective”, as well as Bill Doescher (Business Management Consultants) who will speak at the connected Pre-Meeting Seminar on the topic of “Grabbing a Seat at the Project Table”. Please join us at one or more of these events. Our goal for all ISM events is to provide new ideas that will enhance your professionalism, as well as tools to improve your supply chain skills.
In closing out 2013, I wish to thank the ISM-Houston Board members for their commitment, hard work, creativity, and innovation in bringing a number of new concepts to fruition during this Program Year. I also wish to thank our ISM-Houston Members for allowing us the opportunity to test new ideas and concepts while providing honest feedback on how we can improve and bring more value to you.
I wish you a safe, happy and peaceful Holiday Season!
