Volunteer Appreciation and Management
Have you ever worked on a committee where the process of planning and organizing was as much fun as the outcome? It is an unforgettable experience.
Congratulations to NAPM—Baton Rouge, Inc. for enrolling more new members during the 1999 Member-Get-A-Member Campaign than any other affiliate, and winning a free NAPM educational seminar at the location of its choice! From the start of the campaign on April 1, 1999, through the end of the year, NAPM—Baton Rouge, Inc. boosted its membership total by an incredible 47 percent. Way to go, NAPM—Baton Rouge, Inc.!
If you could make a lasting contribution to the purchasing and supply management profession, would you? You can, with just a few minutes of your time! How? By sharing a few of your tools, you can be instrumental in increasing the prestige of your profession.
C.P.M. and A.P.P. News
Affiliates are reminded to take advantage of NAPM's program to document Continuing Education Hours. It is a simple process: affiliates complete a Continuing Education Hours (CEH) Documentation Request Form four to six weeks prior to a seminar (or other educational event) and return it to NAPM. NAPM will review the information to make certain the program subject matter is eligible for continuing education (for the C.P.M. and A.P.P. programs). If eligible, NAPM will assign a program number and return the completed form, along with a log sheet and Achievement Award forms, to the affiliate. The person responsible for the program will then complete an Achievement Award form for each attendee and send a roster of attendees to NAPM. The attendee submits the Achievement Award form when applying for C.P.M. recertification or A.P.P. reaccreditation.
Watch for your 2000-2001 NAPM membership card in April. Membership cards are sent to all.
