The Construction Management Association of America is North America’s only organization dedicated exclusively to the interests of professional Construction and Program Management.
The Association was formed in 1982. Current membership is more than 8,500, including individual CM/PM practitioners, corporate members, and construction owners in both public and private sectors, along with academic and associate members. CMAA has 28 regional chapters.
CMAA presents two national gatherings annually: The Owners Leadership Forum in the spring, and the National Conference & Trade Show in the fall. Additional events such as topical workshops and "best practices summits" are scheduled each year.
The Construction Manager Certification Institute (CMCI), a subsidiary of CMAA, administers the Certified Construction Manager program, which has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute.
The CMAA Foundation is active in career promotion, research, and scholarships for college-level studies in CM and related fields.
