Welcome to the North Carolina Chapter

Chapter Information

The North Carolina Chapter was established in 2003. We have members across our great state and hope you will join us. Case Management Professionals who work or reside in the state of North Carolina are encouraged to join.

There is NO additional fee to join our local chapter.

We sponsor two key events: a spring and fall conference that address current issues in case management. These events provide our members an excellent opportunity to network in addition to learning and sharing from the collective wealth of experiences of all participants.

The NC Chapter has grown to over 250 members. We are committed to advancing the practice of Case Management, supporting our members in their practice, and providing growth opportunities.

We hope you will join ACMA and the North Carolina chapter and help us advance our practice in our state and nationally.
