    The winners of the 2011 Collaborate to Innovate Awards will be announced and honored at the 10th Annual ProcureCon USA event on September 12 in Atlanta, GA at the JW Marriott, Buckhead.

    Earlier this summer, IACCM and ProcureCon offered procurement teams the opportunity to show off their collaborative efforts by entering their unique story into the Collaborate to Innovate Awards. To be considered a nominee, procurement teams submitted a step by step entry that described an innovative process they've implemented either in the area of internal collaboration, external collaboration or innovative collaboration.

    All entries have been reviewed by the ProcureCon Advisory Board, seven finalists were selected, but only three teams will win. The awards ceremony will bring a close to the "Talent & Leadership" Practitioner Only Day that takes place annually at ProcureCon.
