Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become more involved in the Texas Public Purchasing Association?

That's easy - just volunteer!

Start by visiting the Committees area of our website for a list of committees. Click their "Join This Committee" link for the committee in which you are interested, and the committee chair will get back to you with more information.

If you are interested in being a board member, speak with our Nomination Committee Chair for details.

Why do your conferences move around to different parts of the state?

We want to give purchasing professionals in different areas of Texas the opportunity to attend a conference. Sometimes being in the vicinity allows local entities to send more members for needed education.

If your city, county, college, etc. is interested in hosting a conference, please contact our Conference Committee and let them know.
