President's Message

Stephanie SuterStephanie Suter, CPPO CPPB

Happy 2015! With each year, new opportunities are presented, and for me, the privilege to serve as your VAGP President is one I have been looking forward to for quite some time. Those who have led before me have made VAGP what it is today, and the many awards and accolades bestowed upon our great association are evidence that both past and current Board and Committee Chairs are dedicated to ensuring membership is valuable to each and every member. To have the honor to continue that great tradition with the entire VAGP team, including over 1100 members—who wouldn't be excited by that opportunity?

VAGP's 2015-2017 Strategic Plan identifies five primary goals, and each Board Member and Committee Chair will be working toward these objectives:

  • Advocate best practices in public procurement;
  • Build a robust technology framework in order to enhance member services and deliver them more effectively;
  • Increase and retain an engaged membership;
  • Enhance productivity and professionalism through leadership; and
  • Develop and deliver professional development opportunities to reach members in all regions at all levels of experience and expertise.

As we begin the new year, I challenge every member to engage and take advantage of the many opportunities provided by VAGP, promote the value of VAGP membership, and advocate the value of our profession. Looking forward to working with you all to ensure VAGP remains the pre-eminent leader and resource for public procurement in Virginia.

All the best for a fabulous 2015,
Stephanie
