About Us

Our mission is to serve our members as a chapter of the Institute for Supply Management by providing superior opportunities for education, networking, and career enhancement as a means of advancing and promoting the leading edge practices and profession of Procurement and Supply Management.

For more than a century, Institute for Supply Management® (ISM) has impacted supply management and the purchasing profession through best in class education, certification, leadership development and research.

Since 2008, ISM has trained over 60,000 professionals in more than 30 countries. Thousands have received ISM's coveted Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM) and Certified Professional in Supplier Diversity (CPSD) designations.

ISM research impacts the global economy. The ISM Manufacturing Report On Business® is one of the most reliable economic indicators available. Published monthly since 1931, the report includes the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI), developed in 1982 with the U.S. Department of Commerce, which measures new orders, production, employment and supplier deliveries. The ISM Non-Manufacturing Report On Business® debuted in 1998.

More than 100 years of experience speaks for itself: ISM can help you succeed.

Each month ISM Southeast Michigan hosts signature events, networking events, and educational forums held in and around Metro Detroit.  Our signature events include guest speakers and panel discussions covering important topics related to the supply chain industry.
