Professional Development

The Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) is the only professional association with member benefits and services specifically designed by and for media managers. Membership exclusivity guarantees a sharp focus on the management issues required by today’s busy media managers.  CMMA provides numerous opportunities for members to enrich their careers by sharpening leadership skills while networking with colleagues across the country.

CMMA Conferences

CMMA holds one conference per year, the National Conference in the fall. Attending a conference is the best way to network and build relationships. Each conference blends critical leadership education, information sharing, networking, and social opportunities. Conferences are focused on leadership, management, and emerging technical issues relevant to media managers. Our two most popular conference events, Management Topic-Go-Round and Technical Topic-Go-Round, provide a forum to learn from the experts: CMMA members.

Regional Meetings

Meetings in each of the six (6) CMMA regions provide opportunities for members to gather with colleagues in their areas, address local and regional issues, and learn about the services and facilities at members’ locations.

Metro Meetings

“CMMA Metro” is a local meeting intended to supplement our Regional events.  These meetings can take place more frequently than a typical Regional event, because they do not require as much planning or complexity.  The scope can include a simple no-host lunch, an after-work mixer, or a single-day meeting at a member or partner location.  These meetings are intended to be more manageable from a planning perspective and easier for prospects and members to attend, due to their local nature and minimal need for travel.
