Professional development is our core mission - learning methods include face-to-face courses, online courses, Webinars and events. There is something to be said about in person networking and events. In fact, nothing can replace it.
Every summer NIGP hosts ‘Forum’ the largest gathering of public procurement officials in America. NIGP Forum includes over 60 educational workshops, networking activities, and an award-winning products exposition that boasts over 200 suppliers showcasing the latest products and services available to government.
