LETTER FROM THE CEO

Melanie Freeman
Interim CEO, NAEP

Moving
Forward

T

hank you for your continued support of NAEP as we
move the Association forward this year and grow
our membership. We accomplished quite a lot in
2017 and are positioned to continue to strengthen
and grow the Association this year.
For those who may not recall, this past year was filled
with activities designed to increase the value NAEP offers
to members. For example, based on member feedback,
we recently revamped our RFP Library so that you can
more easily find and download sample RFPs to help with
your projects.
To continue to build on our professional development
offerings, the "On Demand Webinars" page was reorganized
around the procurement core competencies of our NAEP
Competency Model. The Competency Model itself was also
updated around six key result areas that exemplify the skills
and behaviors required to succeed in procurement both now
and in the future.
Lastly, in addition to those many enhancements, we
redesigned the Procurement Academy (all three tiers) to a

8840 Stanford Blvd., Suite 2000

certificate-based program that aligns with our updated
model. We are now able to confirm each attendee's
knowledge base after attending the Academy.
Another area we have augmented, with guidance from
the Professional Development Committee, includes
increasing the number of webinars, as well as the quality
of the content. We encourage each of you to take a few
minutes to watch a recorded webinar on any number
of procurement topics. This is just a small portion of
what we've been busy completing to enhance your
membership experience.
If you are attending our Annual Meeting in Orlando this
April, I look forward to seeing you there. Our program
committee did an outstanding job of preparing a
world-class educational docket. If you can't attend the
conference, watch our website and this magazine as we
will share some of the highly rated sessions as webinars
and articles. Our goal is to bring best practices to you
when you need them and in the best way possible for you.
As with many organizations, NAEP continues to evolve
and grow. While we were sad to see the departure of
Doreen Murner, NAEP's former CEO, we continue the hard
work envisioned by the NAEP team of staff, volunteers and
members and look forward to exploring new opportunities
in the coming year. NAEP is working hard for you this year
and beyond to build a sustainable foundational framework
to carry the Association forward for the next 100 years.
We are excited for the future of NAEP. Let us know how
we can continue to best serve you. I welcome your input
and conversation.
