To the ISHP membership:

It is an honor to lead ISHP. I believe that the growth in the hospitality industry will continue to require qualified purchasing professionals, and ISHP will fill that need.

Over my term, we will be focusing on growing the organizationís membership and increasing the visibility of our members. We will be working as a board to make sure that our members are leading the industry and the value of the credential, ISHP membership, carries in the marketplace. We also will be working to present hospitality purchasing to the next generation of hospitality leaders as an attractive profession in an exciting industry. Finally, we will be exploring potential scholarships for students pursuing degrees in the hospitality industry.

On behalf of the ISHP membership, I want to thank the vendors who offered their support and donations to our 2016 fundraiser. We appreciate all that you do and truly appreciate your partnership in helping our industry. Finally, thank you to Mitch Parker for his work as president over the last two years.

Carl Long
ISHP President
