for NCBA CLUSA’s premier event by, for and about purchasing and shared services cooperatives. The 2015 National Purchasing Cooperatives Conference (NPCC) is the best opportunity for professional networking within the industry.
Adopting industry best practices and engaging members shouldn’t be at odds. At this year’s conference, to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, from October 5 – 7, you’ll learn how to shape and adopt corporate practices that spur both robust industry growth and member engagement.
Based on the results of a conference content survey conducted by NCBA CLUSA earlier this year, member engagement is among the purchasing cooperative industry’s top challenges. At NPCC, attendees will participate in brainstorming sessions on building member loyalty, creating revenue opportunities for members and improving the member-supplier relationship.
Other session topics include board governance, strategic planning, succession planning and worker cooperatives. NPCC attendees will also consider the creation, mission and potential structure of a Purchasing Co-op Association during the conference.
