NIGP volunteer leaders are essential to the ongoing success of our professional association. They bring diversity, perspective, talent, skill, and passion into the discussion as the Institute develops and implements its mission to serve the public procurement profession. As volunteers serve the Institute, the Institute serves the profession, and the profession serves society
Through participation on NIGP Boards, Councils, Committees and Task Forces, you will expand your awareness of NIGP and the profession, and ensure that we continue to support the needs of our members and the profession through premier educational and research programs, professional support and advocacy initiatives.
WHAT IS MY COMMITMENT?
Fortunately, volunteerism comes in different shapes and sizes. There are longer time commitments as well as quick opportunities through focused task forces or single episodic events. Most volunteer opportunities do not require travel. Several opportunities include the need to engage thought leaders who are not practicing professionals but who bring unique expertise and perspective to the table. Their inclusion inspires innovation. Some opportunities can be accomplished through individual effort rather than as a group. However, there are some key, universal requirements:
- A commitment to volunteer the time that’s sufficient to make a difference
- A commitment to engage in purposeful conversation and the ensuing work to be accomplished
- A commitment to the mission of NIGP and the advancement of public procurement
