NCMA Advancing Professionals Community (APC):

Prior to spring 2012, the APC was called the “New Professionals Community.” The APC was established in spring 2012 to promote the development of individuals in the contract management field and bring together diverse professionals so that all in the community can learn from each other and build relationships. The APC welcomes professionals who are new to the field and those who are looking to advance their careers.

New Professional Membership:

NCMA has a New Professional membership category 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.
