January 2015 President's Message

HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL within the NAPM-NH organization; I hope you enjoyed a great and safe holiday season. With the New Year now well under way, what opportunities are you going to participate in to better yourself as a professional within Supply Management? Are you going to look into obtaining your professional certification or networking by participating in the various meetings held throughout the year by NAPM-NH?


By obtaining a professional certification you demonstrate to your current employer (or potential employer if you are job seeking) that you have and know how to apply the depth and breadth of knowledge within your respective field. It gives you a professional advantage over someone who doesn’t have a certification. In addition, Supply Management professionals with a certification tend to earn higher salaries than those who don’t have the credential.  On average those with a professional certification earn ~7-10% more in salary than those without.


Now how about that networking at a NAPM-NH event – they are offered throughout the year. Did you know most people who are out of work during a downturn and network typically recover more quickly than those who do not network? By attending NAPM-NH meetings you stay connected with fellow professionals, learn new or updated information, best practices and have a venue for bouncing ideas off other like-minded professionals.


I look forward to seeing you at the next NAPM-NH event on Tuesday March 17th.


Scott DeFreitas

President, NAPM-NH

NAPM-NH Asked to Help State Procurement Study PDF Print E-mail

NAPM-NH has been asked by the state of New Hampshire to assist in a state procurement study. "It is exciting that the legislature recognizes our organization as a valuable and respected resource to Procurement and Supply Chain expertise," states NAPM-NH president Scott DeFreitas. We were joined at our meeting on September 16th by NH House Representative David Danielson who explained this study, and how NAPM-NH can provide significant value and insight to assist the State with this initiative. Scott DeFreitas revealed that this will "help solidify the value we as NAPM-NH provide not just for members, but to those within the business world – be it public, private or government."
