Utah Chapter President’s Message January 2022

Dear Utah Chapter NIGP Members,

Happy New Year! I hope you were able to enjoy a few days off during the holidays and spend time with family and friends. 

2021 was another challenging year.  Random disruption to our normal lives continued; from the global pandemic, civil unrest, and natural disasters.  These events have prompted us to change the ways we live and work.  

Some are still working remotely and are adjusting to family members in the workplace.  With newish in-person work interactions, we continue to utilize new technologies to enhance our work experience via video calls with colleagues, vendors, and friends.

The Utah Chapter of NIGP landscape has changed dramatically over the last year, including chapter upgrades like incorporating the chapter, updating the logo, and hybrid learning opportunities.  We were thrilled to receive the Platinum Chapter Seal and Outstanding Chapter Award from NIGP, and we are continuing to look for new and innovative ways to fundraise and plan for the future.  For some time now, the Utah Chapter of NIGP has focused on recruiting new members and transforming our education and scholarships opportunities.  This allows our members to respond more quickly with tools and solutions to help your agency meet the challenges in the rapidly evolving procurement environment. 
With our continued partnership with the State of Utah and our NEW partnership with Southern Utah University, we are building resources and training materials to help you meet your needs and your agencies challenges.

Our next chapter meeting will be virtual on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 9:00 am – 11:30 am.  Below is information on how to register.  We hope you’ll be able to join us.  In addition to our chapter events, please block your calendar on May 19 from 8 to 2 for our Reverse Trade Show. This is one of our biggest fundraising events of the season and we need your support to be successful. The event will be FREE for agencies and all we ask in return is a donation of $25 or more to go towards our Silent Auction.   
We appreciate your continued support and will continue to listen, learn, and work to improve your membership experience.  Feel free to reach out directly to me at if you have any suggestions or questions.
