Successful Buying Blue Community of Practice Launch

Apr 14, 2023 | News

The first Buying Blue Community of Practice event took place virtually on April 14, 2023 with more than 600 people in attendance from across all three campuses and Michigan Medicine.  Attendees had the chance to hear from Brian Smith, associate vice president for finance, Pam Gabel, assistant vice president–Shared Services Center, and Tally Thrasher, U-M’s recently appointed chief procurement officer.  An interactive activity helped to identify potential topics and questions for future events and updates on several Procurement Services initiatives were provided.

The next event is planned for July 13th from 10-11am.  Please sign up to receive information about the Community of Practice and future events via MCommunity.
