Membership Engagement & Partnership Program 

Members are the core of our organization, and funding lets our Board develop new training and events for members. This year, various Board members will be working to connect with our members to understand how we can better retain and grow the community and embark on a funding & sponsorship drive to generate funds needs to operate more effectively. Please visit the Membership page online for more information on the benefits of membership and how to join.

If you are interested in your company being a sponsor of ISM—Denver, please contact Micki Warner.


In-Person Meetings

As the COVID restrictions have lifted, we will be planning an in-person meeting to kickoff this new fiscal year. You can come meet the ISM Denver board and fellow ISM—Denver members!


Call for Volunteers 

The Board consists of volunteers, and we are in need of more members to assist with the various projects and activities we have planned. This is a great way to connect with the local procurement and supply chain community! If you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities, please visit
