FY21 Business Plan

As in past years, the FY21 Business Plan is built on a platform supported by not only the mission, vision, and principles, but also by the four Strategic Goals initially identified in 2016 and validated in 2020. The plan goes on to identify Core Activities and specific initiatives. Taken collectively these are designed to drive the organization toward achieving its optimal outcomes.

The Strategic Goals and Core Activities for FY21 are:

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