2023 CMAA Board of Directors Accepting Nominations

The CMAA Board of Directors is responsible for governing the association using best practices in association governance and focuses its attention and activities on the strategic direction of the organization. This calls for individuals prepared to make decisions regarding the best interests of the association overall and not to advocate for special or regional interests. 

The Nominating Committee seeks individuals with a record of demonstrated leadership experience, particularly within CMAA’s local Chapters or national committees; or governance or leadership experience within other nonprofit organizations, trade associations, or professional societies. 

CMAA does not pay the expenses of Board members to attend meetings or CMAA national events, which means all candidates must demonstrate they have the financial support of their employers to participate or are otherwise able to meet the obligations of serving. 

Finally, to be nominated and serve on the CMAA Board of Directors, you must be a member in good standing of CMAA.

FY23 Business Plan: First Steps to the Future

The Strategic Framework that the CMAA Board of Directors approved on April 8, 2022, is the basis for CMAA’s FY23 Business Plan.

The new framework sets a mission, vision, and direction for the organization’s future. It is a transformational expression of the association’s historic purposes and looks to a future focused on project and program success, the growth and development of people as program and construction management professionals, and CMAA being the voice of the profession.

Within the new framework, core commitments remain. First and foremost, CMAA remains delivery‐method neutral. Next, CMAA believes program and project success is more likely when program and construction management professionals participate at the earliest points in the project or program lifecycle. Finally, owner engagement is critical to the profession’s continued growth and development.

The strategic goals and core activities for FY23 are:

  • Transform project execution  
  • Shape the profession
  • Establish CMAA as the premier resource

  • Raise the relevance of the organization

It addresses Advocacy, Ethics, Project Delivery, Efficiencies, Diversity and Inclusion/Workforce Development.
