Our History

The Communications Marketing Association (CMA) is a non-profit organization celebrating 40 years of service to the wireless and land mobile industries.
CMA was formed to support the ever-successful relationship between independent representatives, distributors and the manufacturers they represent. CMA’s network is flourishing, along with the annual event it sponsors, the Communications Marketing Conference (CMC).
You won’t find a better organization if you’d like to increase sales, network with peers, build your representative/distributor network and ensure everyone on your team is on the same page to reach your annual goals. With CMA, our goal is to enhance our knowledge and sales skills so we can sell more products, and in return, make more money.
