NIGP Chapters

With 72 chapters and growing and with over 13,000 chapter members, our Chapters play a vital role in the NIGP organization.

Many of our chapters:

  • Maintain their own websites
  • Publish newsletters
  • Local membership directories
  • Host educational seminars
  • Sponsor conference and tradeshow events
  • Provide employment referral services.

Membership in a local NIGP chapter can offer opportunities to network with professionals in all facets of public procurement, attend local and regional meetings, share ideas and strategies and provide a base to champion for causes that can ultimately influence change within the industry and even more within you local community. Chapters also provide an excellent opportunity for you to develop your leadership skills.

You can contact the chapter relations staff anytime at chapters@nigp.org with your chapter related questions. Check with your local chapter or visit their website for information on upcoming events, activities and additional benefits available to you.
