TERMS OF THE QUARTER
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.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
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.
Michael A. Montanez
