What Members Say:
“The NPI membership is valuable to me as a vehicle to demonstrate organizational excellence, accreditation, and validation through the AEP program.”
“I obtain networking opportunities with fellow practitioners across the country and have a platform in which to investigate, cultivate, and collaborate in ‘think-tank’ fashion internally and with other non-profit institutions with similar or like-professional goals.”
“NPI offers professional trainings that help me achieve my career goals. I am not just a face in the crowd at the conference, I am a valued attendee.”
“I joined NPI because doing so improved my AEP application by providing access to AEP model submittals. I also benefit from the discount to the AEP award submittal fee.”
“NPI gives me a formal platform to educate non-procurement professionals in all areas of the community and business spectrum, including business, political, and conscientious citizen advocacy groups, regarding the value of the procurement activity and fiduciary relationship it entails.”
“NPI is the only organization that provides training specific to the AEP criteria, through an educational track offered at the annual conference. Having tools to assist in achieving the national benchmarks of the AEP program not only promotes confidence in our procurement program, but it also preserves public confidence in our procurement processes.”
