21 Jessica Friedman NCMAs Director Of Marketing
22 NCMA Hears Member Feedback Survey results reflect following comments: Unfortunately our training budget is very limited, so we weren't able to send as many employees as we usually do. Due to budget cutbacks my organization was only able to pay for the registration portion, and I covered all other expenses.
NCMA Reviews Environment A number of government procurement events cancelled Spring 2012 May 2012 letter from OMB August 2012 letter from DoD Pending Legislation 23
24 NCMA Reviews Average Travel Costs
25 NCMA Makes Decision to Move World Congress We have to get a budget for training approved prior to that year. It is helpful to have information early to plan.
26 NCMA Issues Letter from President Elliott B. Branch November 16, 2012 NCMA understands that travel budgets are shrinking while travel costs are rising, and we want to help as many of our members attend World Congress as we can. Nashville is within 650 miles about 10 hours driving distance to 50% of the US population.
27 World Congress Plans Dates stay the same Training and learning objectives stay the same Opportunities for government and industry collaboration remain the same Early in planning process, call for presentations opens soon
28 Value obtained at World Congress is put best in the words of our members: Excellent seminars, excellent speakers, incredible amount of information. Best way to get 20 CPE hours. Great opportunity to network. The only forum where government buyers and sellers can dialog together.
29 See you in Nashville!
