The CMLDP was created to quickly close the gap in leadership progression by accelerating the preparation of a select group of contract management professionals. Candidates will have demonstrated a level of commitment to their professional development unmatched in the field and, as a result, will carry with them a unique, meaningful credential that will open doors to new challenges and professional opportunities.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to serve two additional years with NCMA and actively participate in their local chapters. In addition, they are expected to honor and uphold the contract management code of ethics throughout their professional careers.

Applications for the 2008-2009 CMLDP are closed. If you have any questions, please contact John Wilkinson at 800-345-8859 x426 or
