Networking Opportunities

As you already know, networking with your fellow managers is a huge advantage to membership in CMAA. We encourage networking in three different ways:

  • Attend a chapter meeting. There are many opportunities to spend quality time in a relaxing atmosphere with your fellow managers at every chapter meeting. Whether it's in the hospitality suite or during a break in the education program, it's easy to find someone to share stories and ideas with.

  • Attend a district meeting. Each district meets several times a year offering education and a chance to get together with other local managers. Take advantage of this. You'll not only have the chance to talk to other managers about their challenges but you'll be talking to executives who live in your area and understand the quirks and challenges of your local culture.

  • Have a question or a problem for which you really need a quick answer? Ask your fellow managers. It's simple. Just send an email to Joe Garves, Managing Director, (md1@ovccmaa.org) with your question and he'll forward it to every manager in the chapter. It's one of the easiest and quickest ways to find out how others have dealt with the same issue.


    As a member of CMAA and the Ohio Valley Chapter, you can be sure that every other member has your back.  That's just the way we do things.
