NASPO 2017 Annual Conference

The role of state procurement has changed a lot since NASPO’s members came together at the first Annual Conference 70 years ago. The 2017 Annual Conference will challenge you to innovate new approaches not only to prepare for the future of state government, but to help shape it. Join your fellow members, September 10-13 in Tampa, Florida, to interact, network and conduct the business of the organization as we look ahead to another 70 years of excellence in state procurement.
