A Sourcewell employee is displaying her commitment to continuous improvement by taking on the lead of a prominent public procurement group. Ginger Line was sworn in as President of the Minnesota Chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) at the January 25 officer installment meeting in Stillwater.
Line is a Membership Development Administrator at Sourcewell in Staples and has been affiliated with the Minnesota chapter of NIGP for five years.
“I am humbled by the opportunity to be the 2019 President for the Minnesota NIGP,” Line said. “I’m looking forward to what 2019 will bring for our chapter. We have an amazing board who can’t wait to bring our chapter to the next level and support our membership as much as possible.”
MN NIGP is a professional organization dedicated to promoting professionalism in procurement and contracting for public agencies throughout the State of Minnesota. NIGP provides a nationwide forum for sharing resources, professional development, and networking for all members. There are currently 204 members participating in the Minnesota chapter.
Line is the successor to Past-President Jessica Brokaw, deputy director of procurement with the City of St. Paul.
“When I was elected Vice President, I immediately knew that Ginger would make a fabulous VP and later, President,” Brokaw said. “She’s competitive and her drive to succeed with the best interests of the members in mind will further the chapter’s value to members. Already, she has started to work on adding a spring conference for MN NIGP members. Ginger is charismatic, makes members feel welcome and valued, and will continue to push this chapter to new levels of success.”
