Asserting that it is "on solid ground," the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) earlier this month reported that its growth rate held steady last year at 13 percent.
"Now more than ever, construction and program managers are seeking to leverage the knowledge and professionalism of their teams," CMAA President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce D'Agostino said. "These teams benefit greatly from our career development offerings, in particular the Certified Construction Manager credential."
March set the record for the most members joined in one month with a total of 350 added to the roster, according to CMAA. "Significant gains were made in additional corporate, individual owner, CM practitioner, and owner organization member categories, including the U.S. Department of State Overseas Building Operations, Virginia Department of Transportation, Flatiron Construction Corp., and Kitchell Contractors Inc.
