Region One Education Service Center
Purchasing Advisory Council Meeting
Date: Friday, November 10, 2017
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Place: Fort Ringgold – Region One ESC
♦ Presented by Annette Garcia, Region One ESC
Description: Let’s face it, it’s unlikely the Purchasing Department will be receiving any “favorite department” awards this year, especially since most employees view your department as the “compliance deputy”. But we all know that if you didn’t do your job, which does occasionally involve “rejection” and “EDGAR rule enforcement”, it could have a devastating impact on your district. This session will allow you to identify your customer service approach, learn how to provide excellent customer service and discover approaches to gracefully handle difficult customers.
