CMAA's Mission is to promote the profession of construction management and the use of qualified construction managers on capital projects and programs.

Our Vision is that all owners will realize capital project and program success by using professionally qualified construction managers.

CMAA was formed in 1982 as a way to establish a set of standards for managing capital construction projects. Construction management is rooted in traditional project management practices, however, it requires its own unique set of skills and professional knowledge to perform. One of CMAA's goals is to help the construction management profession further develop its own unique identity within the Architecture/Engineering/Construction industry.

CMAA has nearly 16,000 members which include individual CM practitioners, corporate members, and construction owners in the public and private sectors, along with academic and associate members. CMAA also has 29 regional chapters and student chapters at colleges and universities across the country.
