Join the CMMA

Membership in the CMMA brings with it factory tours, scholarship opportunities, networking opportunities, the exchange of ideas with manufacturers facing the same issues and challenges, along with insight into how other manufacturers successfully do business in our region. It’s not unusual for our members to bump into new improvement ideas during tours and presentations. We know that these opportunities have saved many dollars for our members.

In the past year, all of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Safety, Education, Human Resources and the Executive Roundtable have supported our membership by working on issues important to manufacturers, sharing best practices among them and educating members about available resources. Also, the Quality SIG is being revamped to better serve our members.
