It’s about survival in the contemporary workplace!

NMA is where women and men meet to GROW.  NMA is also THE partner that helps businesses accelerate and leverage leadership talent … where talented people begin to populate a company’s leadership pipeline.

Few organizations can do it all. With an NMA Chapter, it can more quickly identify those who have the motivation and ability to be tomorrow’s leaders! Through Membership in an NMA Chapter or via our Individual Membership Program, you’ll be surrounded by others who exemplify the attributes and core competencies of real leaders. And, you’ll have access to a broad professional development curriculum of courses, webinars, and other opportunities to grow your knowledge base.

We’re the leadership laboratory where theory meets reality.
