The Institute for Supply Management® (ISM®) has opened nominations for two awards: the J. Shipman Gold Medal Award and the ISM 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Stars.
The J. Shipman Gold Medal Award recognizes leaders, role models, and mentors whose “career accomplishments have promoted the advancement of the procurement and supply chain management profession.” Named after J. Shipman, a visionary and pioneer member of the New York affiliate of the National Association of Purchasing Agents—now the ISM, this award was created in 1931. It is a highly-coveted award presented to those who have made lasting contributions to the procurement and supply chain field. In addition to a long and distinguished career, those nominated should also have mentored and guided some of the industry’s young new talent.
