The Government Contract Management Symposium (GCMS) is held annually by the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) in the Washington, DC metro area. Formerly intended for those in federal sector, it has grown to provide training for professionals in both government and industry contracting.
GCMS is a two-day event filled with keynote addresses, executive panel discussions, 20 breakout sessions, and many networking opportunities. Attendees will earn 14.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours for their attendance. Subject matter experts will take the stage to speak on pressing matters such as new and pending legislation; working through budget constraints and program uncertainty; managing through a changing workforce and culture; and identifying and bringing new technologies and innovative companies, models, and business practices to government and industry customers.
