    Overview

    As a huge country music fan, Tammy Rimes also has a famous singing cousin. But Tammy chose a much more exciting career – that of a Purchasing Agent! Combining her knowledge of both, Tammy is passionate about sharing how cooperative procurement and country music have so much in common. Besides buying stuff like tractors and trucks, cooperative procurement is no longer an emerging trend, it is now a proactive way to gain commodities and services. This informative presentation will help you discover ways in which this contracting tool can help with emergency preparedness, construction projects and unique strategies that you may not be aware of. Highlighting real case studies where procurement teams “rocked” and used innovative ways to solve their problems and includes a panel of cooperative partners to answer your questions on emerging issues. Whether you work in a big city or a small country town, sing a different “tune” by taking your cooperative strategy to the next level.
