What is a Webinar?
A webinar is a live, 90-minute online educational event combining real-time presentation with telephone conferencing. Each month, NCMA presents timely topics drawn from both the government and commercial contracting arenas, given by subject-matter experts. Instructors use prepared presentation slides that are available for viewing during the live session. The typical format of the program includes 60 minutes of instructor presentation, followed by a 30-minute Q&A period. Live sessions are held online from Noon to 1:30PM on a designated workday. Participants earn 1.5 continuing professional education (CPE) hours.
How Do I Benefit From The Chapter Hosting a Webinar?
NCMA prices webinars based a flat fee per site ($189), regardless of the number of participants at the site. By hosting a webinar at the Washington Technology Park Conference Center in Chantilly, the chapter pays the flat fee for the webinar and spreads that cost across all attendees. Therefore you pay much less for the webinar! In addition, the chapter provides lunch as part of your registration fee. So by attending our hosted webinar, you save money, eat during the webinar, and have the chance to network with other contracts professionals!
