Membership Has Its Advantages!

There are many benefits to becoming a Consortium member. Both Gold and Silver members can take advantage of special saving opportunities, as well as all the theory and research from ISM’s flagship publication Ideas & Perspectives.

During my 15 years as President of Chaminade College Preparatory in Southern California, I have relied heavily on the expertise and guidance from ISM. Membership in the Consortium allows Chaminade to take advantage of these services in a budget-friendly manner. I feel like I have a fabulous cadre of consultants who are accessible to our management team when the need or opportunity arises.
