Academies & Institutes
The academies and institutes are provided as an educational benefit to our members. These particular events provide sponsorship opportunities for suppliers: Procurement Academy, RFP Institute, Federal Procurement Institute, and the Negotiations Institute. This an opportunity to network with a specific group of members based on the institute or academy. As a sponsor, you may attend the event, in some cases have a speaking opportunity and even introduce a keynote speaker.
There are 11 regional meetings per calendar year. Having smaller meetings ensures direct face-time with members of that region. These one to four-day meetings combine presentations by industry experts, Members, suppliers, and government representatives to help you learn who is doing what in your areas. There are sponsorship and exhibit opportunities for most regions. In many cases, suppliers who support the annual meeting, also attend many of the regional events.
*The NAEP National Association does not support registration.
