SCAGPO Annual Forum Registration

Dear Valued Member:

The South Carolina Association of Governmental Purchasing Official’s (SCAGPO) Annual Professional Development Forum and Trade Show will be held November 13-15, 2019 at Myrtle Beach’s Marriott Resort and Spa at the Grand Dunes.

With your support, the last few years have been hugely successful and we look forward to your participation again this year.  For those of you who were unable to attend last year, we want to extend a special invitation for you to join your peer procurement professionals representing State Government, School Districts, City and County Governments, and Municipalities from around the State. This event will offer you a great opportunity for networking with other professionals. 

At a minimum, SCAGPO's Forum & Program Committees will provide for you, the same level of meaningful engagement as we have in the past.  We will continue to offer engaging training opportunities, networking time with procurement professionals, and ample time on the trade show floor; however, as we move closer to this year’s Forum, we will also be considering ways to enhance the member experience as well.

Please continue to check our website often as we add information from the Program Chairperson.

Thank you.  I look forward to seeing you at the beach!

Stacy Gregg. CPPO, CPPB
