Welcome to the 2016-2017 Program Year kickoff! I am Hector your new President. The theme for this year is: “Get involved. Volunteer.” NCMA is a highly regarded organization, not only for expert training, but also for the knowledge and expertise exemplified by its members. You have many opportunities to get involved from events at the national level, to obtaining your professional certification and volunteering on chapter committees. I am proud to announce the recent accomplishments of several of our members:
• Kristina Parmenter for being a runner-up for the prestigious national Elmer B. Staats Contracting Pro-fessional Excellence Award
• Denise Kirkpatrick for successfully graduating from the CMLDP program.
• Michael Jennings and Mitzi Whittenburg for their article published in the July issue of Contract Man-agement Magazine.
Congratulations Kristina, Denise, Mike and Mitzi for your accomplishments and for representing the Hunts-ville Chapter of NCMA! I am proud to say that we have an impressive depth of knowledge and talent in the membership of our chapter. I would like to know about your accomplishments as well. Please contact me or one of our officers or committee chairpersons to share your news, if you have ideas for something you would like for us to do this year or if you want to volunteer in any way. I appreciate your interest and look forward to working with you this year!
