NMPPA, a chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing, has served purchasing officers, agents, buyers, managers and others associated with public procurement throughout New Mexico since 1996. The association encourages the training and certification of members through professional development opportunities designed to guard the public trust and respond to the challenges of public procurement.

?I am looking forward to providing opportunities for the NMPPA members to obtain advanced professional training that gives them knowledge and skills to take back to their public entities,? said Apodaca, who has been a member of the association for about 10 years.

Apodaca has been in the public procurement profession for more than 10 years and is a Certified Public Procurement Officer. She has a bachelor?s in accounting and a master?s in public administration, both from NMSU. Apodaca has presented professional programs at procurement conferences for the National Association of Educational Procurement, the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing and the New Mexico Public Procurement Association.
