National Education Seminars
Join us for a two-day virtual National Eduction Seminar on Contract Compliance.
Join us for NCMA’s newest all-day National Education Seminar (NES) on Leadership Strategies for Contracting Professionals. Whether you work for the Federal Government, a Prime Contractor or Subcontractor, this NES is for you!
This all-day seminar will focus on the most negotiated contract terms and conditions in the U.S. federal government contracting environment. “Most negotiated” refers to the amount of upfront time and effort typically required to reach agreement. The guide also discusses the negotiation of terms and conditions from three practical, day-to-day perspectives: the U.S. federal government buyer, the prime contractor (as seller and buyer), and the subcontractor.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Chapter is cancelling this Spring’s CFCM Study Group.
A Certified Federal Contracts Manager (CFCM) certification validates your education, training, experience, and knowledge of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. We are offering a ten-week study group this spring to prepare for and take the exam.
We’re offering not one but two webinars this month. And better yet, the first one is FREE! This webinar focuses on Other Transaction Authorities and best practices.
The Chapter welcomes back DAU Professor Michelle Currier and Holland & Knight’s Eric Crusius for an informal discussion on a variety Government Contracting topics. You can even suggest topics for them to cover!

Afterwards, stick around for a fun game of FAR Jeopardy! We will give out prizes to the winning team as well as additional prizes for Best Zoom Holiday Background and Ugliest Holiday Sweater. Best of all, it’s FREE!
Just because we can’t get together in person doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun as a group! Join us for an evening of painting while enjoying your favorite libation.
