In September 2018, just four days before the first home football game, the home of the University of Iowa’s Hawkeye football was in deep – deep water, that is. Flooding throughout the region put Kinnick Stadium underwater. Although the field was made safe in time for kick-off, university officials realized the turf was aging quickly and deemed the best long-term solution for the field to be complete replacement.
Association News
The NAEP Board of Directors is proposing an update to the bylaws governing the association.
The last amendment to the NAEP Bylaws occurred in 2008 and the majority of the changes proposed are cosmetic in nature to modernize the Bylaws to meet today’s association needs. Join us on Friday, January 31st at 2:00 pm Eastern for a town hall meeting to discuss these changes.
NAEP is pleased to offer scholarships for our members! If you have a daughter or a son in college or a trade school, have them apply for a scholarship. Additionally, if you work for a small school, we have a scholarship for you to continue your professional development.  
Are you or your teammates doing exceptional work? Do you want to recognize a colleague for their outstanding work on your campus or to the procurement world in general? Nominate them for a national award from NAEP to give them the recognition they deserve.
NAEP recently launched a new public Exchange bulletin board where members may memorialize those we've lost in recent years. Click on the link below to honor our colleagues who have passed away and to share cherished memories.
  
It's cold out there! Join us in a fun contest and show off your campus in winter. Just wait for it to warm up a bit.
