The event is member-driven and informal, meaning attendee feedback will set meeting agendas and members will take the conversation wherever they see the most value.

For this quarter, Biocom is excited to have Laura Petersen, from Innovative Advancement, present on the challenges and best practices of building out a Procurement Team. She will be going over areas such as hiring talent, communication practices, systems, and many others.
