CTMA Partners Meeting Postponed

Given the escalating concerns around COVID-19, NCMS has made the decision to postpone the CTMA Partners Meeting scheduled for May 5th-7th, 2020 in Quantico, VA. Our main priority is the health, safety and wellness of our event participants, employees and the community. Given the CDC’s recommended actions for preventing the spread of COVID-19, suggested social distancing and ongoing concerns about public gatherings have inclined us to make this decision.

 CTMA has remained dedicated to the development and adoption of innovative technology capabilities for the last 23 years. We look forward to connecting with the maintenance and sustainment community annually and partnering to develop new ways to support key DOD initiatives. Your dedication to Defense maintenance and sustainment and enhancing warfighter readiness is appreciated and we hope to be in contact with you soon with alternative plans for this year’s gathering.
