Message from the President

Craig Wilkie, CLGPO President

Hello and welcome to the NCAGP website. I am truly honored to have this role as 2024-2025 NCAGP President. Being part of this association has changed my life. Meeting and having purchasing colleagues to bounce ideas off of, learn from, and just be around has been a blessing for me.

I look forward to this new year and what it will bring. We’ll have more regional training, more classes with UNC School of Government, our 69th NCAGP Conference as well as the 2024 NIGP Forum in Charlotte, NC in August. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take advantage of the training's offered and classes to acquire your Certified Local Governmental Purchasing Officer (CLGPO) certification.  It has helped me tremendously in my profession and continues to as I’m still learning.

If I can answer any questions regarding purchasing, NCAGP, or other, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to this opportunity to serve and can’t wait to see what this year brings!


Craig Wilkie

NCAGP President
