From CMIT to CCM

For many young CM professionals, the CMIT acts a primer for the CCM. The CMIT program is dedicated to helping young professionals on their paths to becoming a CCM. Through the CMIT program, young professionals will discover new and exciting ways to learn more about CM, while earning the experience necessary to become a CCM.

The path to the CCM may seem daunting. However, the CMIT program is also dedicated to explaining this process, step-by-step. The CMIT program also provides a variety of useful resources for helping young professionals stay organized; like the CMpat, which will helps CMITs keep track of their professional experience.

In addition to CMIT programs hosted by CMAA's national HQ, like the annual Rising CM Conference, many of CMAA's regional chapters also host a variety of their own CMIT events. Please contact your local chapter for more information.
