FY22 Business Plan: Foundations for the Future

During the past two years of the pandemic, CMAA experimented with new programs and new formats for existing programs. Now CMAA is ready to invest time, talent, and funds to deliver education more effectively, provide members with new unique engagement opportunities, and highlight more regional chapters’ successes.

CMAA’s vision, mission, and principles (along with the four strategic goals first identified in 2016 and validated in 2019) support the FY22 business plan. The plan identifies core activities and specific initiatives. Altogether, these drive the organization toward its optimal outcomes and set a firm foundation for the next strategic framework.
The strategic goals and core activities for FY22 are:

  • Improve the performance of the construction management profession  
  • Address workforce needs in the CM profession and in the industry at large
  • Promote CM professionalism
  • Steward CMAA resources effectively to ensure excellence in organizational performance
