The Cabinet Makers Association is a professional organization that began in 1998 with the idea that networking and the power of peers could help member companies grow profitably. The CMA has since expanded to include hundreds of small- and medium-sized cabinet shops, millworkers, furniture makers and their suppliers throughout North America from both the residential and commercial markets. Through shared experience, CMA members educate themselves and clients, with a goal of ensuring profitable work and success for all members, now and into the future. The CMA believes that working together is the best way to improve individual companies and the industry as a whole. The CMA recently launched its new Design and Build a Kitchen for Habitat Days, which brings together regional members, area woodworking shops and its sponsors to build a full set of kitchen cabinets for a local Habitat for Humanity chapter, all with 100 percent donated materials and 100 percent donated labor. Other major initiatives launched by the CMA have included its Concierge Introduction Service for CMA members, which introduces trade professionals such as general contractors, home builders, remodelers, designers and architects to CMA members who provide the products they needed in the markets they serve. Recent additions also include the introduction in 2011 of continuing education unit credits, followed in 2012 by the CMA Professional Certification Program.
