Welcome to CMAA New England Chapter

Started in 1991 by a small group of professionals devoted to construction in a management roll, the New England Chapter now has almost 625 members and over 40 Certified Construction Managers. Major agencies, such as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the Massachusetts Port Authority, and the City of Boston Public Works Department, and such industry players as Suffolk Construction, Gilbane Building Company, Turner Construction and a host of other private construction companies have joined the organization; CMAA continues to see its membership grow about 20% annually.  The continued growth of CMAA indicates the rising importance of construction management within the industry, and the value of CCM certification.


At the national level, the New England Chapter was most recently awarded the Chapter of the Year in 2014 for medium size chapters. It has also generated two national CMAA presidents, a national Person of the Year award recipient, and a national Owner Member of the Year.

Locally, the New England Chapter Board is comprised of 21 members, consisting of 5 Officers and 16 Directors.  All Board Members are volunteers who devote many hours to enhancing the Chapter’s activities. Many serve as Chairs and Vice Chairs on various committees ranging from Advisory/Governance to Young Members.

The Chapter offers numerous activities to the membership, some of which are:

  • Monthly Breakfast Programs on a variety of topics
  • Owners’ Forum Luncheon (4-5 Public & Private Owners with focus on their CIPs’)
  • Annual Project Awards (applications, evaluations, and Awards ceremony)
  • Scholarships for CM Students from 5 area colleges/universities
  • Professional Certification Classes
  • Construction Legislation Tracking & Alerts
  • Seasonal Newsletters
  • Young Member Committee (project site visits and socials)
  • Annual Golf Outing for CM Student Scholarships 


We urge members to consider volunteering some of their time to an activity or committee that interests them which, if they are interested, may eventually lead to becoming a Board member (please refer to our Committee tab for selections and contacts).  Please keep in mind that the future endeavors of the Chapter, and CMAA, are dependent on the managed succession of tasks and services.
