NCMA's StudentsConnect
December 2013
 Message from an NCMA Staff Member



Hello, my name is Khalid Abdulkareem. I’m a marketing intern with NCMA who focuses on membership outreach and am currently a senior at George Mason University. 

Working at a professional association like NCMA, I see that there is power in getting involved and attending events. So my advice to undergraduate and graduate students of contract management is to take advantage of webinars and volunteer at events NCMA provides because it's a great way to learn and meet people who share similar interests.
