Bring NIGP to Your Chapter

Chapter Visits

Take this opportunity to have an NIGP Staff member, Chapter Ambassador, or the NIGP Business Council at your next chapter event either in-person or virtually at no charge to your chapter.  Make sure your Chapter membership is hearing the latest and about NIGP and the industry.  Schedule a visit today! 

NIGP Chapter Ambassador Visits

These meetings between chapters and their NIGP Ambassadors provide chapter members with an opportunity to learn about the latest NIGP member benefits, educational opportunities, resources, and tools. The Ambassador meeting also allows chapter members and leaders to ask questions and discuss the support they need from the Institute.

During Ambassador visits, chapter leaders can share success stories, governance issues, and more. Once the visit is confirmed with the NIGP Chapter Relations Manager, we encourage you to reach out to the Ambassador to discuss the visit as it pertains to the topic of presentation and time with your chapter. When scheduling, please allow ample time for the Ambassador to present to your membership and meet with your Board. We request scheduling a minimum of one hour for an Ambassador visit. 

NIGP Content Presentations

Choose a specific topic presentation to bring to your Chapter!  Request an NIGP staff member to speak to your chapter about Pathways, NIGP-CPP, Workforce Development, and more.  Presentations from members of the NIGP Business Council cover a wide-range of topics such as Disaster Recovery, Supplier Diversity and COVID's Impact on Manufacturing, to name a few.  Click on the box to the right see full a full list of presentation topics and descriptions from NIGP Business Council members.
