19 New CMA Members in 2017!
2017 was a very exciting year here at The CMA. We welcomed a new MD Catherine Maskell, launched new events such as The Digital Breakfast on Tour, Future Content Sessions, as well as running various training days. On top of all of this we welcomed 19 new members!
CMA members fit into 6 different categories; Content Agencies, Media Agencies, Brands, Overseas, Affiliates and Start Ups. This means we are now able to facilitate smaller agencies who are in the content space and would like to learn from the industry leaders whilst contributing to the content conversation.
“I am absolutely delighted that our membership grew by 50% last year. We welcomed some large industry names alongside some regional stars. At the CMA we pride ourselves on offering unique benefits to our members whilst promoting their work throughout our channels. 2018 looks like it has the potential to be one of our biggest year’s yet and I am excited to continue working with both our loyal long-standing members as well as our new recruits!” – Catherine Maskell, MD, The CMA
