Membership
 

"The networking opportunities through my NAPCP membership are a valuable resource.  The ability to network with my peers in the public school sector has given me a whole different perspective on how to do my work.  Before I attended a Regional Forum in Dallas, I had been struggling with getting all receipts from area campus sites.  During the Forum, I had the chance to network with others who dealt with the same issue. One attendee shared her solution: create mailing envelopes so that staff members could send their receipts to their P-Card Administrator.  This sounds simple, but without the networking opportunity, we would not have solved this large issue so easily.

The NAPCP website is a resource I use to keep up with changes to industry standards.  There are too many places to check for updates and to keep track of changes but I can go to the NAPCP website and find the updated standards with all the information in one place. Receiving e-mails from the eNetworking board on a daily basis is a valuable resource, too.  There are typically two submissions a day and it’s great to see how many people respond.  I have been able to manage our benchmark program through this network. It’s nice to talk with someone who is having the same problems and be able to work them out."

"Membership in the NAPCP brings recognition and credibility to my role as P-Card Administrator. Our organization is a shared services holding company that provides service to multiple operating companies. Management supports the idea that membership and certification promote employee expertise so I can provide better service to our clients as well as to internal departments. Many of our employees are obtaining credentials that pertain to their position through association memberships, and are doing so without having to attend a university. I plan to obtain the CPCP credential through the NAPCP."

Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) Credential Program

"Since receiving my CPCP certification...

I have added confidence to share aspects of our City's Purchasing Card program with other industry professionals. Many organizations also require industry certification within a few years of employment, and a benefit of attaining that goal is the respect that peers have for such an accomplishment."

"Since the CPCP designation is already becoming recognized throughout the purchasing card market as an indicator of one's knowledge and experience, I felt it was important - and very worthwhile - to become certified. In my role as an Account Manager for the leading Commercial Card Provider in the industry, my clients look to me on a daily basis to share best practices, recommend strategies for growth, and provide general information to help them run the most successful card programs. My CPCP certification is one more way of building my clients' confidence in my credentials to meet these needs. It also reflects positively on American Express as an issuer, in that we're offering to clients and prospects a truly professional support team. Although I'd say the process, qualifications and test are sufficiently robust to ensure real meaning behind the CPCP designation, they are not insurmountable and I would encourage all professionals in P-Card roles to make it their goal to become certified."

Career Center
 
"After twenty years, my former employer went through a restructuring process which included layoffs. . .  I had not updated my resume in nearly two decades, so I logged on to the NAPCP site to get a feel for how to structure my resume as a Purchasing Card professional. After reviewing several postings, I completed my resume and posted it on the NAPCP Career Center.

 

 I was not prepared for what happened next.  

 

Within hours, I received my first two e-mails from companies looking to set up interviews. From one of those leads, I ultimately accepted my new position as Purchasing Card Administrator. The NAPCP Career Center was perfect place for me to post my expertise as a Purchasing Card Professional—and is the best site for companies to find qualified individuals in our specialty market. I still appreciate how easy the NAPCP site made it for me to transition into my new company."

Annual Conference
 

"It really is a world-class information-sharing event, one of the best I have attended in 20 years. I know that anyone who attends will tell everyone they know . . .”

"The annual conference is awesome – there are so many ideas in one place.  The first year I attended, I went to the P-Card Basics Workshop and it was great!  Lynn Larson has so much energy that she keeps you involved.  I was a brand new P-Card Administrator at the time and starting my own program.  With the information and resources from the conference, I was able to get my program started in the right way.  I have been a member for three years and each year I come home from the conference with pages of information and so many good ideas that there is barely enough time to implement them all."

"The NAPCP is the first resource I look to for Purchasing Card information. I have a meeting with internal and external auditors coming up regarding best practices, and I’m using a lot of information from the NAPCP website to prepare. I enroll in audio calls, too, and for the first time last year, attended the 10th Annual Conference. I was truly enlightened by one of the provider demonstrations offered at the conference. I thought the demonstration would be about banking systems, but instead I learned about audit systems and other technology that I knew nothing about. My understanding of the entire P-Card industry grew tremendously by attending that one demonstration."
