11.0 MEMBERSHIPS IN PROFESSIONAL AND TRADE ORGANIZATIONS
Agencies can benefit from employees who are
members of professional or trade organizations. Such memberships can provide agencies with relevant
literature and journals, reference material, notice of current developments, access to libraries and
databases, access to important events, and a variety of other benefits. An agency may, at its discretion,
pay for the membership or organizational dues of a limited number of representatives from among its
employees in a particular profession or trade. Agencies must obtain government discounts where available, and must restrict payment for such memberships to the employees for whom it is most essential
to support official agency business. If payment is for more than one employee, agencies must explore
group memberships which are offered by many organizations. Such expenditures must be authorized by an
appropriately responsible manager determined by the agency.
Who Can Join?
We invite all active and retired Government procurement and purchasing professionals to
join our NIGP Chapter. Members are encouraged to serve on at least one chapter committee. Chapter officers must
be able to dedicate enough time to participate and make a difference in the organization. Our Chapter also serves Governmental
Procurement employees from Northern N.J., and Southern Connecticut.
Benefits of Joining
There are many benefits to becoming a member of our organization. Our members network
at bi-monthly meetings and become close professional friends. We have a great time when we get together at events such
as our annual holiday dinner. Of course, like other NIGP Chapters we also share a common interest, and we hope to further
NIGP's causes and personally develop every members knowledge and skills and potential.
