CMAA Policy Framework and FY19 Business Plan
The CMAA Board of Directors, at the October 2018 Board meeting, approved a Policy Framework that was designed to accomplish these objectives:
• Affirm organizational values; translate values into action
• Position CMAA to act in a timely and consistent manner
• Raise the relevance of the organization
It addresses Advocacy, Ethics, Project Delivery, Efficiencies, Diversity and Inclusion/Workforce Development. The approved edition of the Policy Framework for CMAA is available here.
The Board of Directors also conducted a review of strategic goals in October 2018 with the twin objectives of:
(1) re-validating and maintaining established priorities and
(2) refining these priorities based on new viewpoints and changing market conditions.
The Board concluded that the four primary goals remained relevant to the organization and that within each goal, specific strategic statements could be revised to reflect recent programmatic developments. Accordingly, FY19 is "The Year of Engagement and Growth."
The FY19 Business Plan is therefore built on a platform supported by the mission, vision, and principles. The four strategic goals initially identified in 2016, and expanded in 2018, are supplemented by core activities; taken collectively these are designed to drive the organization toward achieving its optimal outcomes.
