Is/was the first time

What's the difference between

-This is the first time I have given a suggestion.
-This was the first time I had given a suggestion.

HAVE GIVEN means the act is completed, then why IS not WAS? Assuming that the two sentences refer to past acts, what's the difference between is/was?
