 Join us at the Halifax Regional Workshop

CIPMM is hosting a one-day Workshop that we think will be a wonderful opportunity for the procurement, materiel and fleet management professionals, living and working in the Nova Scotia region, to gain important insights, share experiences, and exchange ideas about the latest developments in the procurement and materiel management. This one-day Workshop, hosted in Halifax, will offer a combination of “hot topics” presentations and insightful keynote sessions, as well as great opportunities to network, ask questions, interact with speakers and engage your peers in discussions. Don’t let these opportunities pass you by!
