Need Additional Justification to Attend NSMMS & CRASTE?

Consider training funds and continuous learning points. Most organizations have separate funds for training and general travel and have had an easier time getting approval to attend technical conferences under training funds. Does your organization require you to meet continuing education or learning goals each year? Many government attendees in acquisition roles have been using NSMMS & CRASTE to help meet these Continuous Learning goals. Participation in the symposium counts as a "Professional Activity" and they are able to collect points (also known as CLs or CLPs) for attending and/or presenting at the symposium. Additional points are also available if you attend the workshops that are held on Monday.

Summary Chart of Recommended Points:

  • Professional Activities
  • Professional Exam/License/Certificate 10-30 points
  • Teaching/Lecturing 2 points per hour; maximum of 20 points per year
  • Symposia/Conference Presentations 2 points per hour; maximum of 20 points per year
  • Workshop Participation 1 point per hour; maximum of 8 points per day and 20 points per year
  • Symposia/Conference Attendance .5 point per hour; maximum of 4 points per day and 20 points per year
