Masters Academy: Best Practices in Government Contracting

February 12 @ 8:30 am - February 16 @ 4:30 pm




The Masters Academy is designed to provide an exceptional learning experience. Each day, different experts will share their insights into the leading practices in key areas of Government contracting. Over the course of five days, you will have the unique opportunity to learn the lessons experts have culled during their careers in Government contracting.  This program is not intended to cover the basics or each topic in its entirety. Instead, the Masters Academy is intended as an advanced course focusing on leading practices.

Each participant will be provided the “Formations of Government Contracts” co-authored by Ralph C. Nash, Jr. Collectively, the body of knowledge you will acquire during this program will give you an unparalleled education in Government contracting leading practices.
