NAEP 2019 Call for Presentation Open: Have an Idea? Make It So
Monday, July 9, 2018
This year's theme, "Enterprise Supply Chain Solutions - Make It So!" is all about procurement: an emerging frontier. These are the sessions of the NAEP Enterprise. Trying to empower procurement professionals to seek out new ideas and opportunities to enhance their department, community and institution. To boldly go where no one has gone before!
If you ever watched an episode of Star Trek, you may recall the diversity displayed through its vast array of characters. In 1966 when the show first appeared on television, audiences were introduced to individuals of different races, ages, cultures, sexes, religious denominations, political persuasions, military prowess, among other unique indicators successfully working together toward common goals.
As we meet in Kansas City in April of 2019, we want to demonstrate similar abilities of working together. Whether it is working within the procurement department or collaborating across departments within the institution, we all want to achieve success. Each session within one of the four Star Tracks: Efficiency, Inclusion, Innovation and Procurement will relate in some way to diversity and inclusion. We will also provide multiple opportunities for extended networking so you may share new concepts and discuss methods to implement these best practices after the meeting.
Use the online submission form to share your story. You will be asked to create a profile and then upload one or more presentation topics for consideration. (You will need to create a profile even if you applied last year). You will be able to make changes and edits to your proposal until the extended submission deadline of September 21st.
