Welcome to the Desert Southwest Chapter of NIGP
By Peggy Hayes, CPPB / Recording Secretary

Welcome to the homepage of the Desert Southwest (DSW) Chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP). We’re so glad you found us! The DSW was granted its Charter on May 1, 2007. We have many members and are always looking for more professionals to join us. Current members come from many different organizations in the Yuma area, including City of Yuma, Crane Elementary School District, Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Yuma Educational Materials Management Consortium, Arizona Department of Corrections, Arizona Western College, Bureau of Reclamation, Yuma County, Yuma Union High School District, Department of Defense, Department of the Navy and the Somerton School District. NIGP is an International organization that promotes the Purchasing and Warehousing Professions in very important ways. Being a member of a local chapter will afford you the opportunity to meet other people in these fields. It also opens up wonderful new opportunities in the pursuit of education dealing with Purchasing and Warehousing in the Government sector. DSW conducts seminars right here in Yuma on a variety of subjects related to the profession thus avoiding travel expenses. In partnership with the Universal Public Purchasing Certification Council (UPPCC), NIGP offers a certification program for anyone interested in pursuing a career in Purchasing. They are the Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB) and the Certified Professional Public Officer (CPPO). More information can be found at http://www.nigp.org. We hope you’ll consider joining our Chapter. If you are interested, please click on the “Contact Us” button.
