The Sacramento Gold Rush Chapter offers our members the opportunity to learn more about the contracting profession through three primary means: 1) our annual March NES Event, 2) helping our members get certified in one of NCMA’s five nationally recognized certifications and 3) by providing learning opportunities for our members through seminars, webinars and NCMA’s National Education Seminars (NES).
