Chicago, Ill. (PRWEB) April 27, 2016 -- SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces a one-day Regional Roundtable to be held in Chicago, IL. The Regional Roundtable is a one-day strategic meeting that will take place from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at Health Care Service Corporation. This buy-side event provides education and local networking for professionals from Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies. A combination of practitioner presentations, facilitated roundtables and panel discussions, a SIG Regional Roundtable enables delegates to converse in a collegial, non-commercial environment.
The Chicago event covers best practices in contracting for cybersecurity and data privacy protections, stakeholder engagement success, strategies to future-proof procurement and more.
“More and more often we are seeing the CPO report directly to the CEO. As the position has gained in strategic importance, the ability to share concerns with other professionals facing the same challenges has also become more critical,” says Stephani McGarry, Vice President, SIG Global Events. “Our Regional Roundtable program allows colleagues in a local community to network with like-minded professionals and brainstorm on those issues that are keeping them up at night.”
