Contract Management Leadership Development Program


The CMLDP is designed to help develop the next generation of contract management and NCMA leaders through an intensive yearlong educational experience. Program participants will receive 180 hours of top quality training in fundamental leadership, association volunteerism, NCMA governance, and contract management. The program is quite relevant to contract management professionals regardless of their employer, location, or industry.

You must be an NCMA member to apply, but there is no application fee.  NCMA is investing in future leaders, so the cost of materials, instruction, seminars, conferences, and mentoring is provided at no cost to participants. (You should know the market value of the training you receive would exceed $15,000!)

The only expense participants experience is travel-related costs to attend the four in-residence events. Applicants may seek support for these expenses in full or in part from their employers or their chapters. Your total travel expense for the program will vary depending upon where you live, but we estimate your travel expenses will be from $4,000 to $8,000 for the year.

Applications for 2013-2014 will be accepted May 1 – June 28, 2013. For more information, click here.
