Indianapolis, Indiana April 12, 2022 – The Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (APTAC) is pleased to announce that Tiffany Scroggs Assistance Center (PTAC), has been recognized with the association’s prestigious Fellow Award.
APTAC’s Fellow Award is not given each year. It is a special award bestowed on someone who has gone above and beyond in service to the association and its members, often working behind the scenes in a variety of capacities as needs demand, demonstrating dedication to the organization and to the Procurement Technical Assistance Program over many years. Only 12 have been awarded since the inception of the Association. The last award was presented in 2018. Tiffany has been instrumental in managing APTAC’s communications to its members using newsblasts and other electronic alerts, quarterly newsletters, the APTAC website, and social media outlets. A former APTAC President, Tiffany’s leadership is evident throughout many initiatives. As a current member of the APTAC Board, she continues to help guide the progress of the Association. She brings new and novel ideas on training our members. She strives for sharing best practices among the membership and is a true guru of continuous improvement for all through training, sharing, and communication

From Michael Cade, Exec Director of the Thurston Economic Development Council in WA State: “Since1989 I have either worked on it in a supportive administrative role, as a promoter, as a sub-center, and now in my current role at this organization. I have seen the PTAC program in all its states and efforts – and I cannot truly express my appreciation of how Tiffany has supported the effort, guided it, participated in APTAC – and then has taken those efforts and lessons and has applied them to our state’s employers. My Board of Directors has a great appreciation and admiration for her work.”
