Purchasing Today

Adding Value to a Memorable Year Members Only Content

This past year, I have had the privilege of serving as your national president. During the year, I have promoted a belief vital to all purchasing professionals - adding measurable value to ourselves and our employers. Successful and progressive careers, as well as attaining personal satisfaction, are directly related to our ability to add value! It has been a pleasure to share this belief and gain the understanding and acceptance of it by not only our members, but also the business community. With our employers focused on change, we too, need to change. I challenged each of you to get involved and help lead these changes! I am proud of and excited about the positive reaction with which all levels of association leadership are responding to these changes in our profession. In our continued efforts to build on a solid foundation, our national leadership is committed to the NAPM Strategic Plan as the "master plan" of this organization. The plan gives the NAPM board of directors, districts, affiliates, committees, groups, forums, and staff direction when setting their own goals and objectives.
