December 2017 – President’s Letter

ISM-Lehigh Valley Members!

With Thanksgiving behind us and the holidays fast approaching, I feel it is appropriate to take a moment to reflect and show appreciation on the many things we all can be thankful for.  We must remember to be grateful to the many opportunities we, as Supply Chain Professionals, have and will be presented to us in the future.

First and foremost, I realize how thankful I am for family. Family is the main support center for all that we do and all that we hope to do in the future. Second, I would like to take this opportunity and let the ISM-Lehigh Valley Board of Directors know how thankful I am for each and every one of them for their dedication and leadership to continue to present excellent subject matter Professional Development Meetings. Third and most importantly, I am thankful for YOU, the membership. For your monthly participation and insightful discussions. We had a very good year in 2017 and plan on continuing in 2018.

Some of our highlights from this past year:

  • We presented four very well qualified MBA students $1,500.00 scholarships each for continuing their Supply Chain Education.
  • We had a very informative tour of Coca-Cola Park, home of the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.
  • Held the 31st annual Ellery T. Royal Memorial Golf Tournament at Beautiful Silver Creek Country Club, in Hellertown, PA. We look forward to your participation for this year’s Golf Tournament to be held on June 4th, 2018.
  • Toured Weyerbacher Brewing Company.
  • Received The 2017 State of the Lehigh Valley Current Trends.
  • And a really big one here…. Re-invented The ISMLV.ORG website.  It looks great and You can renew your membership through this site!

These are some of our highlights from 2017 and look forward to many more in 2018!

I wish everyone a very Happy Healthy Wonderful Holiday Season and New Year!!!

Can’t wait to start 2018!!!

Many thanks,
