The NIGP Chapters from Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii have been working to bring to you the 1st ever Regional Conference and Vendor Showcase!
The event is set for May 17 to May 19, 2017 at the beautiful Wildhorse Resort in Pendleton, Oregon. Warmth and sunshine is almost guaranteed!
Opportunities abound to network with other purchasing professionals from 5 states. Alaska and Hawaii will mostly be participating using new video conferencing capabilities, but who knows – we might bump into a few!
There will be two NIGP-sanctioned trainings on the first day of the conference, then the real fun begins!
Vendor showcase – there will be about 50 vendors in attendance!
Golf Tournament Fundraiser, anyone?
Lots of opportunity to expand your procurement knowledge with break-out sessions, quality speakers, banquet, entertainment – this conference will have it all!
Did I mention registration will only be about $150?
Pendleton is less than 3 ½ hours drive from Vancouver, WA and 4 ½ hours from Seattle. Not a long drive to come network and learn with Purchasing Professionals from neighboring states!
