While the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, Procurement Leaders fundamentals, values and commitment to our global membership community has not changed.


During this time of change and adjustment for many global organizations, we are dedicated to supporting our members in an agile fashion. You can count on us to continue to closely monitor the landscape as businesses move from speculation to planning. We will continue to update you with resources and reactions from the community on this page over the coming months of adjustment.
