Start preparing your application now for admission to the 2014-2015 NCMA Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP). This program is designed to help develop the next generation of contract management leaders through an intensive year-long educational experience. 

The program’s emphasis is on building leadership skills that will benefit the contract management profession. These skills are developed through academic understanding of leadership, exposure to practicing contract managers and business leaders, and association volunteer leadership opportunities.
Program participants will receive 180 hours of top-quality training.


Who participates?

Contract management professionals with four to eight years of experience. Even if this program is not for you, share the information with someone else! Pass this email along to a contract management professional who might benefit from the experience.

Why did NCMA create this program?

This highly regarded program was created because the members of the current contract management workforce are retiring faster than the next generation can replace them. This has created a gap in supervisory, middle management, and executive-level positions across the entire profession. The CMLDP is designed to accelerate the preparation of a select group of contract management leaders, helping to close the gap in leadership progression.

How can I get started?

Applications are being accepted May 1, 2014  June 30, 2014. Visit the NCMA website to learn more about the requirements.
