May 22-24: AP Automation, Supply Chain Flexibility, Board-Level Cybersecurity


Another week full of conferences… there are four in-person events happening worldwide, just sneaking in their gatherings before the summer begins! In fact, with the Memorial Day holiday next week, we likely won’t be making any event recommendations.  

If you are planning your procurement event schedule beyond this week, I recommend ‘How to Build and Maintain Effective Supplier Partnerships’ from Procurement Leaders & GEP on June 7th at 10am ET.

And now for this week’s recommendations… 


AOP Event - Driving Value Despite the Chaos: Procurement as a Differentiator (ProcurementIQ)
