Regional Councils


The NASPO membership is broken into four regions of the country. These regions participate in monthly calls to discuss important regional issues, share NASPO information, enhance regional communication and collaboration, and evaluate potential involvement in current and future NASPO ValuePoint cooperative contract initiatives. 

Each council holds an annual regional conference to further networking and knowledge-sharing among the states. The regional councils also act a planning work group for Regional Conferences working closely with the NASPO Programs Coordinator to develop conference content that is relevant to their region. Information concerning upcoming regional conferences can be found under the Future Events tab.

Each region has a chair and vice chair that are elected by the region to preside over their regional council for a one year term. The 2018 chair and vice chair for each region can be found below.

Chair: Kelly Mix, Oregon
Vice Chair: Linda Polk, Alaska

Chair: Heather Calahan, Michigan
Vice Chair: Genevieve Hayes, Michigan
Chair: Jaime Schorr, Maine
Vice Chair: Peter Korolyk, Delaware

Chair: Lisa McKim, Oklahoma
Vice Chair: Rebecca Krystopa, Georgia
