SIG Sourcing named Outstanding Community
The Association for Information Systems has named SIG Sourcing as an outstanding Special Interest Group for the year 2019. This honorable recognition serves as motivation for groups to maintain excellent programs, operations, and services that support a successful AIS Community. SIG Sourcing as an example has hosted multiple events bringing together IS scholars, teachers, and practitioners contributing to this recognition.
