OUR HISTORY

Leading the Supply Management Industry

ISM-SFV started as the National Association of Purchasing Management-San Fernando Valley (NAPM-SFV) on February 24th 1988. At that time, the original core group of nine purchasing professionals clarified a common supply management vision. From that initial 1988 core vision, came our association to fill that need for a professional supply management organization to assist educate and inform purchasing & supply-chain management professionals.

Within 7 months of that 1988 initial core meeting, our association attracted nearly 100 additional members.  On September 14th, 1988, NAPM-SFV adopted its charter and became an affiliate of Institute for Supply Management (formerly known as National Association of Purchasing Management). NAPM-SFV was one of the first affiliate associations of the National Association of Purchasing Management, and one of the first affiliates to bear the name “NAPM” in its corporate entity name.

On January 23, 2015 the name was changed to Institute for Supply Management – San Fernando Valley or ISM-SFV.  We are still an affiliate of ISM.  But now our name is more in line with the national organization.
