Our focus is you.
Member involvement and support are important to the continued growth and success of the contract management field and NCMA. As such, NCMA Tysons is focused on career development at all stages to facilitate the ability for qualified students and professionals to gain real-world experience and to establish meaningful and long-lasting professional relationships within NCMA.
Contract Management Leadership Development Program
The Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP) is designed to help develop the next generation of contract management leaders through an intensive yearlong educational experience. Program participants will receive 180 hours of top quality training in fundamental leadership, NCMA governance, and contract management. The program is quite relevant to contract management professionals regardless of their employer, location, or industry.
New Professional Membership
NCMA has a New Professional membership category that was created in 2010 for members under the age of 33. Young professionals have the desire to interact with their association, but don’t always have the support of their organization. Now, with lower dues, it’s easier for a young professional to join on their own or make the case for NCMA membership to their boss.
Visit NCMA HQ for more information about joining.
NCMA Tysons Mentoring Program
The NCMA Tysons Mentoring Program is the forum for senior and experienced contracts professionals to privately discuss relevant and important topics with more junior contracts professionals, such as how to make choices about job responsibilities; how to handle job-related issues including procurement issues; and balancing professional responsibilities and life issues.
