Why Join NCMA?

If you are not already a member of NCMA, you should consider joining the Twin Cities NCMA Chapter.

While the NCMA is a well-established organization with national resources and countrywide programs, the greatest benefits of membership are realized at the chapter level.  NCMA Twin Cities organizes and delivers an array of cutting-edge programs that reflect current issues faced by our members.  We provide training in a number of different formats - all day courses with in-depth coverage, seminars to brief you on current developments, and outstanding dinner speakers who cover a broad range of contracting topics.

Membership in the NCMA is a great way to stay current with developments in contracting, obtain practical training in interesting topics and network with other professionals in this field. Members are encouraged to obtain professional certification through the NCMA - a great move for advancing your career.

NCMA is unrivaled in offering members the best and most current educational opportunities. The association strives to keep members updated on the latest trends and practices in contracting. The monthly Contract Management magazine and a full library of educational resources are a couple of examples, and Chapter seminars, luncheons, and workshops typically feature topics that challenge or advance the profession.

NCMA also gives individuals an opportunity to develop leadership skills by volunteering at the local, regional, and national levels of the association. Active NCMA members enjoy the support of a large network of contracting professionals, including job posting services at many chapters and at the national level.
