ISM is Individual Membership Association of the Year
In December 2021 the ISM was named Individual Member Association of the Year in the 18th Association Awards, presented by the Association of Association Executives (AAE)
'ISM has a strong member-centric approach towards both the challenges of COVID-19 and Brexit that its members face, with a wide range of achievements under incredibly difficult conditions. Also, they are clearly able to strategise well and capitalise on their strengths.'
Judges, Association Awards 2021
'I am extremely proud that our campaigning and lobbying and extensive support for members who have, and continue to face, exceptionally challenging circumstances has been recognised by this award. Our ability as an independent organisation to respond to the needs of the membership and wider sector is second to none. I would like to thank the ISM staff team and Board for their hard work and commitment which has made this award possible.'
