Advancing Professionals Community
Welcome to the Advancing Professionals Community (APC) page of the NCMA website! This is the central location for individuals who are interested in building relationships with and learning from other professionals in the contract management field. We welcome professionals who are new to the field and those who are looking to advance their careers. There are a few ways to get involved and sharing information learned is encouraged.
Prior to spring 2012, the APC was called the “New Professionals Community.” The APC was established in spring 2012 to promote the development of individuals in the contract management field and bring together diverse professionals so that all in the community can learn from each other and build relationships. We welcome professionals who are new to the field and those who are looking to advance their careers.
The APC leadership council is led by Khadra Abdulkareem and currently has five members: Adam Hurlburt, Allie Stanzione, Helen Mejia Lopez, Luisa Martinez, and Marcus Soriano. The council is working together on ways to build on the APC’s growth and contribute to the NCMA community.
Join us at an upcoming event and contact us if you would like to host an event for advancing professionals in your area. Be sure to check our page often for updates!
