Who We Are
NPMA is the leading membership association for personal property and fixed-asset professionals.
Hear about us. Listen to this American Airlines in-flight radio interview on who we are and what we do.
Personal property professionals are responsible for the effective and efficient management of hundreds of billions of dollars of fixed-assets at leading corporations, at federal, state and local government agencies, and at healthcare and educational institutions.
Companies and organizations around the world benefit from the strategic role of fixed-asset and personal property professionals who are poised to be strong, integral parts of all organizational processes and contribute greatly to the bottom line.
Why? Because effective, efficient asset management results in cost savings and cost avoidance throughout the property life cycle, from determination of requirements, through acquisition, utilization and disposition.
NPMA serves as a center of excellence, education, and evolution for the profession. Recognized as world-class professionals, members benefit from the finest products, programs, and services that promote professional development.

Today, NPMA is the largest association for asset property management professionals in the world. We have members throughout the U.S., in Canada and overseas. Each member belongs to one of the 60 local NPMA chapters, and each chapter falls in one of three geographical regions.
Established in 1970, NPMA has helped countless professionals maximize their careers. We can help you too. Traditionally, NPMA's membership consisted primarily of employees from federal agencies involved in contracts and their contractor counterparts. Today's NPMA includes property managers from colleges and universities, the health care industry, state and local government, technology and manufacturing firms and supporting consultants. Our property managers come from virtually any organization where assets are managed efficiently and cost effectively. This diversity reflects a membership rich in tradition and innovation.
