Who are We?

The Northwest Purchasing Education Council was formed
in June 2002 by ISM affiliates in Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon and Washington to promote purchasing and supply management educational opportunities in the Pacific Northwest.
The Pacific Northwest Purchasing Conference is a great way to stay in touch with new developments, establish relationships and hone supply chain management skills. Cost effective and close to home, local conferences maximize our educational ROI.

72nd Pacific Northwest Purchasing Conference
We are proud to announce the 2015 Pacific Northwest Purchasing Conference will be held in Portland Oregon, October 26-28, 2015.
We are very excited about the venue for the 72th annual conference which is sponsored by the Northwest Purchasing Education Council (NPEC). The host committee is hard at work lining up programs on current issues and topics in the supply management field. The event will be an outstanding educational opportunity for members and to enhance your professional career while earning credits towards ISM certification.
This conference has been the major region-wide educational event for purchasing and supply management professionals. In addition to the educational opportunity, the Conference will include a leadership workshop and a one-day vendor showcase.
