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. 

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.
