Benefits of MPPOA Membership

Networking Opportunities

  • Membership provides individuals with access to a network of almost 300 public purchasing professionals in Michigan, and countless others from around the United States and Canada through NIGP. This network proves invaluable as members face tough purchasing-related scenarios.
  • Our membership consists of individuals from state, county and local units of government, road commissions, educational institutions and community mental health organizations among others.

Professional Development

  • There is perhaps no better way to strengthen the public purchasing profession in Michigan than through the encouragement of educational and training opportunities for our members. MPPOA's programs range from half-day luncheon seminars to 3-day conferences.  The MPPOA Board of Directors actively promotes professional certification through the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP); multiple classes are offered each year to assist individuals in reaching their certification goals.  View our Upcoming Events.


  • Annually, MPPOA recognizes its members for dedication to excellence and pride in their work.  You can view information regarding our awards on our website.
