Make the Case for Attending the 2017 Canadian Conference!

As you know, Commercial Card and Payment programs make sense in any economy. But now more than ever, you just can’t afford to miss this opportunity to learn, share and take back new ideas to impact your organisation’s financial outlook. 

If you need senior management approval for travel and training expenditures, consider developing a proposal to make the case for attending the NAPCP Canadian Commercial Card and Payment Conference in Toronto, Ontario! 

Follow the steps below to secure management approval:

Prepare Before You Meet with Management

List your department’s current initiatives or goals such as cutting costs, streamlining processes, reducing fraud and abuse, expanding programs, implementing new audit procedures, bringing more visibility to your program, and overcoming specific challenges.

Breakout session information is available in the Conference Program. Identify those sessions that relate to your goals and initiatives. Review the list of attending organisations to date.

Convert Dollars to Purchasing Card Transactions

Did you realize that each transaction moved to a P-Card purchase represents an average savings of C$87? If you are an NAPCP member, you could pay for your registration with 6 new transactions.

At the conference you will learn from experts how to improve and expand your Commercial Card and Payment program and this knowledge will pay for itself! See the chart below for a few more examples.
