Our members are at the heart of everything we do. We are excited to showcase just a few of our member's stories. These are the Faces of NCMA.

In 2018 I was asked to be a part of the Boston Board of Directors. It’s been really empowering to make a difference locally. Volunteer in your local chapter and try to make a difference. You get out of NCMA, what you put into it.  Watch Ryan's video interview here.

I hope people see my face as an underrepresented minority at NCMA. I am a woman, a black woman, but I am so much more than that. As NCMA continues to grow, I hope that we see EVERYBODY at the table. Watch Anestacia's video interview here.

As a young professional still, I feel like I can share my experience to help people make certain decisions that maybe I would have done differently. I want to share that information with others and also continue to give back and provide to the success of NCMA as a whole. Watch Jennifer's video interview here.

I’ve met a lot of people since joining NCMA. I’ve met people I’ve relied on for benchmarking purposes, job referrals, and bouncing ideas off of. They’ve become great friends and that has been an unexpected benefit for me.
Sharlene McCubbin
