Patricia Giesler, our President and CEO, attended last week's Barksdale Air Force Base Vendor Expo in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana, her hometown.


Over 200 vendors participated in the Barksdale AFB Vendor Fair, which took place on January 24th and 25th. As a result of this event, vendors were able to market their supplies & services directly to the 350 plus Government Purchase Card cardholders on Barksdale Air Force Base, as well as 2d Contract Squadron personnel and local purchasing agencies. In 2022, they had combined purchasing power of over $65 million.

In attendance with Patricia Giesler was her sister Beth McClellan who provided handpicked candied pecans from her very own pecan farm!


A highlight for Patricia was meeting so many inspirational women.
