Resource Center: The NAPCP Resource Center houses the most comprehensive collection of P-Card educational resources found anywhere. As a member, you have a direct connection to articles, white papers, reports, survey results and content filled with ideas and best practice recommendations to help you build your program and keep up with industry and regulatory changes.
Newsletters: The TransAct! newsletter is delivered periodically, and contains a feature article and additional content and expertise focused on one particular topic.
Networking: The NAPCP recognizes the tremendous value of networking with peers across end-user and provider organizations. We offer traditional, face-to-face networking events and vibrant online communities that allow you to network from your desktop. Connections to industry providers means less time searching the Internet for issuers, vendors and solution providers who understand the P-Card value proposition. And don’t overlook the Annual Conference as an efficient means to meet scores of vendors under one roof—from the biggest names in card programs to smaller organizations offering unique solutions, products and services. The NAPCP can be especially helpful during the RFP process or when it’s time to re-engineer your procure-to-pay methods.
Events: NAPCP educational events offer wide-ranging depth and breadth for P-Card professionals of all experience levels across all sectors. Our Regional Forums, Webinars and Annual Conferences (in the United States, Canada and London) cover a wide range of topics. Bookmark the NAPCP Events page and visit often to see what’s new.
