Greetings NCMA Tysons Members, Friends and Colleagues,

My name is Jennifer Hanks and I have the pleasure and honor of being the NCMA Tysons President for the 2019-2020 program year. I envision a new and exciting program year so I look forward to connecting with all of you at the new and signature events, training and networking opportunities.

The Acquisition and Contracting community is ever-changing and it is my goal to keep pace with providing innovative solutions to meet the needs of our members. The focus areas for this program year include execution of programs and initiatives through proactive and innovative leadership methods, increased engagement with sponsors to improve change integration response times, continued collaboration with other NCMA chapters, accountability and quality of our service offerings, continued fellowship with members and partners, and the timely execution of Committee initiatives (i.e. Women In Leadership, Leadership Summit Planning Committee, etc.).

We have an outstanding program year ahead! We will continue with our very successful Women In Leadership Initiative, our Contract Life-Cycle Series, and the NEW Subcontract Management training series for the current program year training courses. We will also continue supporting the Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP) and the Mentoring Program. More information to follow in this Newsletter.

On September 24th, we will kick-off the program year with Ms. Deanean Machis, CPCM, Chief Professional Development Officer and Education Director from NCMA HQ to share the vision and goals for NCMA for the upcoming year followed by our guest speaker Mrs. Stephanie Fugate, NCMA National Board of Directors member and USAID Division Chief, Professional Development and Training.   Details for this dinner meeting are provided within this Newsletter. Please come out and network, meet new friends and join in on the discussion.

Lastly, I want to thank our amazing 2019-2020 Board of Directors and Advisors and YOU who help make NCMA Tysons an amazing Chapter!

The BCS/ICS series have been retired and have been replaced with other educational opportunities.

NCMA Tysons has completely revamped the entire Education and Training series being presented during the 2014-2015 Fiscal Year. The BCS/ICS series have been retired and have been replaced with the following educational opportunities:

1. Advanced Special Topic Webinar Series (ASTW) - This series includes 12 courses over the fall and spring that will provide 2 hours of web based instruction by industry experts on complex government contracting, audit and lifecycle issues and problems along with rectifying solutions.

2. System Series: This all new material will provide Instructor Led Training in a fall 6 course series on Subcontracting and a Spring 6 to 8 course series on Business Systems. Each course will be about 2.5 hours and will include breakfast networking and 2 hrs of Expert Led training.

3. Government Contract Lifecycle Workshop - This third pillar of the newly formed training program will provide full day workshops on the PreAward, Administration, Closeout/Reporting phases of the contract lifecycle and tie each lifecycle phase to the applicable FAR Part. The intent is to make resources comfortable and knowledgeable not just with the FAR, but with the contract lifecycle, issues that arise, and the applicable FAR Part within each lifecycle phase.

Currently, we are scheduling a 2 day PreAward Workshop in the fall, a 2 Day Administration Workshop in the spring, followed by a 1 day Closeout and Reporting workshop also in the spring.

Facility Sponsorship: Companies interested in volunteering training space for either the series or workshop courses receive complimentary training for their resources to fill open seats. Please contact VP Education, Chris Wade if you are interested at: cwade@CaaSus
