Registration is officially open for our exciting two day event on November 5-6, which includes our 2014 Fall Training Conference at the JW Marriott., Excellence in Partnership Awards and 35th Anniversary Black Tie Gala at The Reagan Building.
As many of you are aware, in honor of our 35th Anniversary, we have created the Coalition for Government Procurement Endowed Government Procurement Scholarship/Fellowship Fund with The George Washington University. The Coalition has made it a priority to fund and endow a scholarship/fellowship to provide financial support to a deserving veteran concentrating their studies in the field of US Government procurement and pursuing the JD or LLM degree in Government Procurement Law or the interdisciplinary Masters of Science in Government Contracting degree (MSGC) at GWU. This Scholarship/Fellowship represents the two pillars of all that we do at the Coalition—- promoting common sense acquisition and supporting our veterans!! Common sense in acquisition starts with starts with education and the students, including the veterans, enrolled in these programs will become the next generation of skilled professionals leading this critically important sector of the US economy.
This year’s 35 Anniversary event is special. In order to raise funds for the scholarship/fellowship, we will be holding a silent auction the night of the Gala where all net profits will be dedicated to endowing the scholarship/fellowship. We kindly ask that you and/or your company support our endowment efforts by donating an item for this special occasion.
