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. This year's symposium consists of keynote addresses from cybersecurity and technology leaders, nontraditional panel discussions, 30 breakout sessions, and many networking opportunities with 1,000+ contract management professionals. New this year, we're offering a Defense-Focused Forum, a special Monday afternoon event for the defense acquisition community with an emphasis on defense-specific acquisition changes and challenges. Attendees will earn up to 14.5 CPE/CLP credits for their attendance. Explore the site to learn more about this year's event. Check back as more details are added.
