Welcome to ISM-Philadelphia

A Message to Our Members and Community,

The health and safety of our members and community is paramount. We are continuously reviewing and responding to local, state, and federal recommendations regarding the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation. As such, we are taking steps to protect our members, event attendees, and staff while still providing opportunities to connect around the ideas and initiatives that are important to the vitality of our organization.

The Section will be postponing, cancelling, rescheduling or changing formats for all events through the remainder of March and the month of April. Current event attendees will receive a communication from our staff to confirm postponement or cancellation, as well as updates when new dates are confirmed. We invite you to visit our events calendar to stay informed about our evolving schedule.
