Each year, NCMA conducts a “Contract Management Salary Survey” to report on compensation, education, benefits, and work settings for members of our profession. Make sure to encourage your chapter members to participate to ensure that the data in this report provides a high-quality, accurate representation of the profession. Your responses are confidential. Personal and company names will not be revealed. This survey will be open until April 12, 2013.
