Every year a Fall Conference programming committee creates a program schedule that promises to keep you at the cutting edge of Educational Procurement. With sessions and workshops lead by NAEP-NE members, educational procurement professionals like you and I, and other professional procurement organization partners, programming aims to educate, network and share best practices within the field. 
Our vendor community is also invited to take center stage with vendor showcases and workshops. Vendor showcases are an opportunity to learn what is new with the products we buy for our organizations. 
This is an annual experience that is not to be missed.
