FY24 Business Plan

The FY24 business plan for the Construction Management Association of American (ż) is grounded in the Strategic Framework approved by the ż Board of Directors on April 8, 2022.

The framework sets the mission, vision, and direction for the future of the organization. It is a transformational expression of the association’s historic purposes and looks to a future that is focused on project and program success, the growth and development of people as program and construction management professionals, and positioning ż as the voice of the profession.

Within the framework, core commitments remain. First and foremost, ż is delivery‐method neutral. Next, ż believes program and project success is more likely when program and construction management professionals are engaged at the earliest points in the project or program lifecycle. Finally, owner engagement is critical to the continued growth and development of the profession.

The strategic goals and core activities for FY24 are:

  • Transform project execution  
  • Shape the profession
  • Establish ż as the premier resource
