CMAA Policy Framework

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.

FY20 Business Plan

As in past years, the FY20 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 2019. 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 FY20 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

Accordingly, FY20 is "The Year of Implementation and Evaluation."
