NIGP’s 65th Annual Forum and Products Exposition
There was cause for celebration when procurement professionals from federal, provincial, state and local government agencies in the United States and Canada gathered for the 65th Annual Forum and Products Exposition hosted by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) in San Antonio last August. One reason to celebrate was the achievement of “legendary” NIGP members as reflected by the presentation of awards.
