Public Procurement Professionals: Reconnect. Reimagine. Reunite.
Excitement is in the air with the return of OPBA’s first in-person conference in four years.
That’s why our theme, "Public Procurement Professionals: Reconnect. Reimagine. Reunite." is
It’s also because OPBA is on a track of growth and strength:
- We are making substantial investments in our education programming to support stronger public procurement professionals.
- We are creating better, more meaningful networking and connection opportunities for our members
The OPBA conference is developed by public procurement professionals for public procurement professionals.
The response to OPBA's Call for Speakers was so robust that we were able to add concurrent sessions to Thursday's program. Join us for a powerful professional development program that includes updates from procurement experts in areas such as law, insurance, and trade treaties, as well as learn from your peers about the innovative programs they are implementing in their communities.
We are excited to announce that S2 Drones, our conference Media Partner, is now accepting bookings for Thursday, October 5 only. To book your appointment, download the flyer for the QR code and book your appointment directly with S2 Drones. This initiative is being handled directly by S2Drones so all inquiries should be directed to them by email at Trent@S2Drones.com
Golf or T-Shirt:
Once again, OPBA is thrilled to organize the Caveat Emptor Cup Golf Challenge and sale of t-shirts to support a local charity, ProjectShare.
ProjectShare helped over 9,000 families last year through their 5 pillars of support: food security, homelessness prevention, healthy living, training and education, and seasonal support (Christmas and Back to School programs.)
