The NAMPC Certification Panel meets regularly to review MPC Certification Applications.
Applicants who pass the rigorous, standardized review are approved for MPC certification and NAMPC membership.
Upon membership enrollment, each Member completes a confidential psychological personality assessment. This additional step helps ensure the highest quality, most compatible, and most enjoyable Campaign-Consultant connections.
A Political committee or candidate [Client] contacts NAMPC for a Consultant connection.
Based upon the Client’s Campaign needs or specifications, NAMPC will provide a list of at least three (3) vetted best-match, MPC-certified Consultants for each position.
The Client interviews the best-match Consultants and makes the hiring/contracting decision.
If needed, the NAMPC will partner with the Campaign client for Consultant contract offers. All negotiations are non-biased and focused on the mutual benefit of both the Campaign and Consultant. The NAMPC does not receive a percentage or finder’s fee for any Consultant hires/selections. Likewise, we do not accept payments or incentives from Consultants for Campaign matches.
