Register for Forum 2021

At NIGP Forum, we activate our shared passion for public service and explore new ways of realizing our collective vision to enrich communities.  We honor what our members have accomplished in the last year and prepare for what’s next.​

NIGP Forum is where procurement professionals share their stories and hear how others progressed during uncertain times while staying anchored to their purpose.  Encounter the inspiration, the resources, and the perspectives you need to make an impact every single day. NIGP is your source for energy, innovation, and ideas.  Together, we expand what is possible in the communities we serve.​
