Utility Purchasing Management Group (UPMG) Annual Conference

ISM®'s Utility Purchasing Management Group (UPMG) Annual Conference is recognized as one of the premier educational events within the utility supply chain profession. Working with our executive committee of utilities professionals, suppliers and thought leaders, we are building an in-person event packed with education and yes, connection with other supply chain professionals and suppliers within the utilities industry. We are excited to see everyone again and invite you to join us to connect, share lessons, celebrate and walk away inspired to tackle the challenges ahead.
