Contract Management Leadership Development Program


The Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP) is designed to help develop the next generation of contract management leaders through an intensive yearlong educational experience. The program's emphasis is on building leadership skills that will benefit the contract management profession. Program participants will receive 180 hours of top-quality education in fundamental leadership, association volunteerism, NCMA governance, and contract management. The program is quite relevant to contract management professionals regardless of their employer, location, or industry.

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.
