Intermountain

Contract Management Seminar

ICMS is the most comprehensive training event for contract management, procurement, and acquisition professionals in the Intermountain Region.




Who Attends?

 
We expect 200+ attendees from across federal, state, and industry partners.
 
More than 50% of attendees serve in supervisory/executive roles.
 
Over 100+ federal contracting professionals from Hill Air Force Base, The Department of Veterans Affairs, and the civilian agencies.
 
Why Attend?

It’s Comprehensive.
The ICMS is the most comprehensive training event for contract management, procurement, and acquisition professionals in the Intermountain West.
 
It’s Convenient.
One compact day of learning, directly across the street from Hill Air Force Base, the epicenter of contract management expertise—not to mention Utah’s largest employer of contracting professionals.
 
It’s Collaborative.
Interactive breakout sessions and panel discussions led by experts in the contracting industry. Breakfast, lunch, breaks, and a closing social all organized to enhance networking opportunities with speakers, peers, and partners.
 
It’s Cost-Effective.
We are bringing contact management professionals from around the nation to Utah, so if you want the expertise but don’t have the travel budget, the ICMS is the perfect learning and networking opportunity.
 
It’s Cutting Edge.
ICMS speakers are sharing detailed insights on the latest challenges and trends in contract management. The Great Salt Lake Chapter of NCMA has thoroughly vetted the speakers and their presentations, so attendees won’t be getting bare-bones, old, or recycled content.
 
It’s Career-Focused.
Career counseling, a Career Fair with booths and industry representation, and educational sessions will improve the knowledge base of current contracting employees while providing resources for those interested in contracting careers.
