SPC News

July 11: Suburban Purchasing Cooperative Vendor Fair The Suburban Purchasing Cooperative (SPC) is proud to announce that it will hold its first Vendor Fair on Thursday, July 11! The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in room 1610 at Oakton Community College, 1600 E. Golf Road, in Des Plaines.

The SPC Vendor Fair presents a unique opportunity for local government officials from the SPC’s participating councils of government to meet one-on-one with all SPC vendors at one time. Northwest Municipal Conference (NWMC), DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference (DMMC), South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association (SSMMA), and Will County Governmental League (WCGL) members and staff will be onsite to learn about the products, services and solutions offered by the SPC to help you better serve your communities.

Vendors will have individual display areas where you can discuss all of your joint purchasing needs. Oakton Community College has designated Parking Lot C to exhibit vehicles and heavy equipment offered by the SPC, providing attendees the opportunity to “kick the tires” and compare various makes and models side-by-side. In addition, vendors will provide a catered lunch for attendees.

We are excited to host the SPC Vendor Fair and hope to make it an annual event. For more information and to complete the RSVP form for the event, please visit the NWMC Vendor Fair webpage. For questions or additional information, please contact Ellen Dayan, or 847-296-9200, ext. 132.
