So the NCMA NORTH TEXAS Chapter program year has concluded.

And what a year it was!

We had great speakers and networking events this past year. Some of the subjects we covered in the past year include: Contract Best Practices, Preparing for Negotiations, Life of a SWAT Negotiator, Commercial Procurement with DoD, and Lean/Agile Contract Management.

Your NCMA North Texas Chapter also hosed 4 networking events. These networking events are provided to give you the opportunity to network with contracts and subcontracts professionals in the Dallas area. The best networking event was the one we co-hosted with NCMA Fort Worth Chapter. It was great meeting with them in Grapevine during the holidays!

Also this past year, your NCMA NORTH TEXAS Chapter initiated a Mentoring Program. To date, we've paired up 5 mentees with mentors. Our hope is that this facilitates two way dialogue between younger and more seasoned professionals and helps both grow in their careers.

Everything we do, all the plans we make, each meeting we hold, each program we start, is all for one purpose...that's to help you Accelerate Your Career in whatever way we can! if you have ideas on how we can be more successful...if there are topics you'd like to hear more about...if there are speakers you'd like to see...if there are other events you'd like us to sponsor...if there are study groups you'd like to see...please let us know!
