CMA’s Complimentary Executive Networking is Now Virtual

CMA's goal is to be the destination for Canadian marketing leaders to connect and succeed.

We have moved our popular CMA Café, presented by Mastercard, to an entirely virtual approach while expanding it further to facilitate stronger connections within our community. 

This builds on a successful first year of in-person sessions which saw hundreds of marketers connect with strong feedback in nearly 30 Office Hours. 

For the 350+ members of the community, no changes to your existing account need to be made.  But don’t miss that there’s now more to explore for you and for those not-yet-signed-up executives looking to engage virtually with others during this time. 

As always, this complimentary program is reserved exclusively for:

  • CMA Corporate Members
  • Director-level and above



There are three ways to leverage this service to meet your virtual networking needs so sign up today!
