Benefits of Chapter Membership


We cordially extend an invitation to you to join our organization.

The most valuable purchase you can make is an investment in yourself by joining an organization that is dedicated to improving your performance and obtaining more value for increasingly scarce tax dollars. By joining the Washington State Chapter of NIGP, you will become a member of a professional organization dedicated to the principles and needs of the public purchasing profession.

Who is eligible for full membership?

    • performing procurement and material management activities in a public organization including federal, state, county, municipality and township, public school, college and university, hospital, commission, authority and any other public agency
    • employed full or part time in positions having a direct influence on the public procurement process, including elected officials, department heads and educators

Membership Benefits

    • Education and training opportunities.
    • Discounted rates for NIGP seminars.
    • Professional assistance in obtaining and maintaining certification.
    • Networking and interacting with purchasing professionals throughout the State of Washington.
    • Funding assistance for educational training.

How it works?

  • The annual membership fee for Washington State Chapter members is $40. This fee is often paid by the individual member's agency and is indicative of the value the agency places on the importance of the purchasing profession. As a reminder, chapter membership is not included in national membership.


    Please contact our membership chair if you have any membership questions. We look forward to extending a warm welcome to you as a new member of our chapter.
