For 75 years NIGP’s Forum has been connecting procurement communities. Every year, this premier annual event brings together passionate public procurement professionals from across the U.S. and Canada who travel to a designated city—to collaborate with peers on best practices, to share experiences, and to attend informative workshops and discover innovative solutions to everyday challenges. Attendees leave energized and ready to implement new ideas that will positively impact their agencies and their communities.
This year we were so excited to bring you a truly memorable experience. Little did any of us know that we would have to grapple with a once in a lifetime global pandemic. COVID-19 has transformed the way we live and transformed the public procurement profession. While it has devastated everyone from those living in major cities to small rural townships, it has also shone a bright light on the heroic work you are doing to keep our communities and our lives safer.
