This individual is designated as the "Agency Representative."

All persons designated as Agency Members are entitled to the full privileges of membership, which include petitioning and voting rights, eligibility to serve as a member of a committee, and eligibility to serve as a member or officer on the NIGP Governing Board.

Each purchasing organization has its own membership and cannot be included under another (blanket) membership.

Please note that NIGP chapter membership does not entitle an agency or individual to an NIGP membership.
