Topic: How to Win the "Change" Game
If there was one thing you could change about change, what would it be? Would you slow it down, speed it up, limit it, or make it disappear? In today’s fast paced world, change is the only thing that is certain. Despite this reality, more than 70% of change initiatives fail. Unfortunately, change management is often underestimated as a critical key to success.
In this presentation, we will engage in a unique and thought-provoking conversation about change. We will explore the barriers to success and how to overcome them, the role that culture plays in influencing outcomes and how you can lead change with confidence!

By the end of the presentation, you will walk away with relevant and practical common-sense strategies for leading change.

We look forward to seeing you there!  To Register-  calendar

We extend a warm welcome the members of the recently dismantled Gainesville affiliate.  We look forward to the opportunity in the near future when we will get the opportunity for a face to face meeting
The Incoterms® 2010 rules* (International Commercial Terms) were developed by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) as a uniform set of rules to clarify the costs, risks and obligations of buyers and sellers in international commercial transactions.  Because they address issues relating to import and export, Incoterms® 2010 rules are most appropriate for use in international shipping; they are, however, used for U.S. domestic shipping as well.

The 2013 calendar year is quickly coming to a close and I would like to express my warmest wishes to all the professionals affiliated with the Institute for Supply Management. The year has been filled with its share of victories and trials for many of us, but I will attest that our challenges tend to make us stronger and wiser. As an astute man once said, “the world is our classroom and we are all students of life”. Consequently, the holiday season is designed to bring joy and happiness. Therefore, I would challenge all of you to find an opportunity to do something good for another this year. Embrace the spirit of giving and allow yourself experience the goodness that this time of year has to offer.


In turn, your ISM- Florida First Coast affiliate will be back in full swing in January for our next program meeting.  The event will be held at the Blackfin Restaurant located in the St. Johns Town Center. We will be joined by former state congressman Lad Daniels and I would like to extend a personal invitation to all members and friends of the affiliate. Congressman Daniels is a dynamic speaker and will provide an intellectually engaging forum that you will admire. See you soon. 
Happy Holidays,

Michael A. Montanez
