Utah Chapter President’s Message May 2021

Dear Utah Chapter NIGP Members,

We are looking forward to our upcoming May 20, 2021 Chapter Meeting, which will be held 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.  If you haven’t already, please go to and register under the “Event Calendar” Section in order to receive the meeting link.  We will have the NIGP Business Council presenting to us, which is made up of vendors and Procurement experts.  They will be discussing the Total Cost of Ownership with us.  We look forward to receiving great ideas.  

We will also be announcing a new event happening this Fall.  We are excited to share some details with you at the chapter meeting- Stay Tuned!

We are working to bring more educational offerings to our chapter, and are sponsoring three NIGP courses.  These will all be held virtually, so we may have members from other chapters join us.  The chapter will receive a portion of registration fees back as a fundraiser.  The chapter sponsored courses include:

June 15-16, 2021 (2-Day):  Core Certificate- Foundations of Planning & Analysis
August 10 (1/2 Day): Competency Module- Specification Development
October 12 (1 Day): Competency Module- Cost, Price & Value Analysis

Funds will go into our Scholarship budget to help members cover costs for events such as NIGP Forum, NIGP and chapter sponsored courses, CPPB/CPPO or NIGP-CPP prep courses or exam fees, etc.  Please take the opportunity to apply for a scholarship.  We want to help you succeed in your career goals!  More scholarship as well as Agency Award opportunities will be coming again this year.  

Thanks to those that participated in our See’s Candies Mother’s Day fundraiser.  We raised a total of $67.00.  We will have another fundraiser period towards the end of the year that we hope you will participate in.  We appreciate your support of our chapter.  These funds will also go to our scholarship fund to help fund educational and professional development opportunities for you.

We hope you’ll find time to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather amidst all of you daily responsibilities.  You are all amazing, and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to be associated with you.  We enjoy the collaboration we have with you and your agencies.  Together we are stronger.  

We look forward to meeting with you on May 20th.

Yours Sincerely,

Tonya Hodges
Utah Chapter NIGP President
