Welcome to the NWMA
The Northwest Management Association (NWMA), formed in 1972, is one of ten regional management associations within the Social Security Administration. The NWMA represents field office and TSC managers in Seattle's Region 10.
Representatives from the NWMA meet with Region 10 Executive Staff to discuss management views on service delivery, program policy and many other items that are of interest to field office and TSC management personnel. The NWMA representatives provide opinions on a wide variety of topics. Some representatives participate in Regional and National workgroups.
What is the National Council of Social Security Management Associations (NCSSMA)
The ten regional management associations form an umbrella organization known as the National Council of Social Security Management Associations (NCSSMA).
Nationally, the NCSSMA provides field office and TSC management with a national voice on service delivery mechanisms and federal employee issues. The NCSSMA meets regularly with top agency official to discuss matters of importance to field office and TSC management. In addition, NCSSMA has representatives on a variety of SSA national workgroups.
NCSSMA also retains a Government Relations Consultant and meets regularly with Members of Congress and their staffs to discuss budget and other issues of importance to our members.
