Updates, COVID-19 and Meetings


There have been seismic changes since the last time I blogged on Interact.  

After discussions with Jackie, we decided to hold cancel our meeting.  I think we would have normally made it virtual, but as many of you know, we have experienced technological issues during the last three meetings in which people tried to unsuccessfully patch in.  We have tried Adobe Connect and Google Hangouts and both have been problematic.  We hope to have this issue resolved prior to our next meeting.  

On another note, I have decided that it's time to step down as President of the NCMA, Golden Gate Chapter when I can find a replacement.  I've been doing the job (rather suboptimally) for over a decade and it's fime to infuse new ideas into the Chapter.  I've sent out several emails to our membership asking if there is interest in helping to keep the Chapter going.  I've received four responses, which is a good start. 

The Golden Gate Chapter started in 1977 and is one of the oldest active chapters within the NCMA family.  If you're interested in helping out, please send me an email to les.yamagata@gsa.gov

Finally, the GSA, Federal Acquisition Service, Pacific Rim Region is looking for GS-13 contract specialists.  Here is a link to the announcement as well as the announcment number.  Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.  


Announcement No. 


Take care everyone, and keep in touch.  We'll sync up soon.  Be well.
