The Benefits of Membership

Professional Development Opportunities: TxPPA rigorously determines member needs and coordinates multiple training opportunities throughout the year.

Annual Conferences: Each year, we present a summer and fall conference where members can meet, participate in professional development classes and seminars, join member discussions, get up-to-date on industry changes and legislation in public purchasing, and improve their professional standing - and their value to their employer!

Legislative Updates: TxPPA tracks issues, bills and legislative changes relevant to public purchasing in Texas, and provides informed counsel for laws and lawmakers that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public procurement in Texas.

When laws change or new developments occur, our members are first to know!

Communications: Access to TxPPAConnect (our members-only listserv), LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook updates, and other online professional tools. Our TxPPAConnect service is a Listserv which automatically forwards email from you to members who have subscribed to the service. Replies are also distributed to subscribers; it's a great way to share ideas and learn how other professionals deal with challenging situations. To send a message to other subscribers, just email [email protected] and the system will automatically distribute your message. If you have subscribed and are not receiving messages, your spam filters may be trapping the messages. Speak with your IT department and have them "white list" mail coming from [email protected]

Networking Opportunities: Our members have the opportunity to network with colleagues from across Texas at conferences and meetings and through our online tools.

These networking opportunities promote the exchange of ideas, experiences, and fraternity in Texas public purchasing.
