2018 NIGP Forum Information


Welcome to ETPA's 2018 NIGP Forum Information Page where you can find all the information needed to attend and volunteer at this year's Forum in Nashville.

Young and/or New Public Procurement Professionals Scholarship: NIGP's Young Public Procurement Professional and New Public Procurement Professional Forum scholarships program provides assistance to public procurement professionals 40 years of age or younger OR for people new to the public procurement profession (three years or less). In 2017, 52 applications were received an 11 people recieved financial assistance to attend the Forum. Two of those reciipients were ETPA's very own Matt Kleinschmidt with Loudon County and Julie Maxwell with the City of Knoxville. The deadline to register for this year's scholarship is March 16, 2018. This is a great way for our younger and new members to attend Forum, especially with it being in Nashville this year. To apply, visit NIGP's Forum page at http://www.nigp.org/home/attend-events/annual-forum and click on the button that says "Scholarships to Forum."
