Welcome to NCMA Phoenix Thunderbird Chapter!

As Chapter President for the 2015-2016 Program Year, and on behalf of our incredible leadership team this year, we thank you for your interest and participation in NCMA and our chapter.

As we continue to celebrate our 50th Anniversary as an NCMA Chapter, we are proud of the great services we offer our members and look forward to enhancing those services and growing the chapter.  Our primary objectives this year are to provide training and seminars focused on current topics in collaboration with other chapters and professional organizations.

A sample of our strategic plan, program and events includes:

  • Monthly Hot Topic Informational and Educational Seminars at varying times and days of the week to better accommodate ALL our members
  • Certification Preparation Study Groups
  • Networking Events
  • Career Fairs
  • Volunteer Opportunities

Our brand new website features current events, will list upcoming meetings and educational offerings in conjunction with other local chapters such as the NCMA Saguaro Chapter, Institute of Supply Management (ISM), NCMA Virtual Chapter and other professional organizations that we intend to collaborate with this year.  Notifications and publications will be sent out from our LinkedIn and Facebook sites and we're in the process of converting to Constant Contacts which will be the method of marketing upcoming events in the future.

In order to provide the best services to our members, monthly meetings will be offered at varying times, dates and locations while also collaborating with the NCMA Virtual chapter for those who are best serviced through the flexibility of virtual training. 

Our first event is being held at the Hilton Phoenix Airport at University and 47th Street on September 29th where we'll have the privilege to hear Mr. Mike Fischetti, NCMA National, Executive Director speak on NCMA Certification and the Contract Management Body of Knowledge (CMBOK).  Networking and a dinner buffet are included so you won't want to miss it!  Visit our website for more information and to register through the "Events" tab.

It is an honor and privilege to lead this chapter and we hope you'll consider joining our team as a volunteer.  If you have any questions or want to get more involved, please contact me at julie.vandyk@L-3com.com or 602-350-9267.  We will be pursuing a Board of Advisors this year and will keep everyone abreast as that evolves.
