  • Learner Benefits

Earning your CM denotes recognition in the profession – not only as having earned the designation – but as an individual committed to continued professional development throughout your career.

With your CM, you will:

  • Build credibility and legitimacy with the use of the CM logo and/or CM letters following your name in your email signature, on business cards, LinkedIn, and resumes.
  • Showcase your CM designation with a physical certificate and digital badge you can profile on your LinkedIn.
  • Receive an exclusive invitation to the Annual CMA President’s Reception.
  • Join other CMs and the CMA’s CEO during networking luncheons and online events to discuss the future of marketing.
  • Contribute to the CM Spotlight Blog showcasing your CM journey and career highlights.
  • Apply to judge the CMA’s Achievement in Marketing (AIM) Award and Lifetime Achievement Award as a representative of the CM community in Canada.
  • Receive 20% off all CMA events, courses, and training (excluding the CMA Awards) that can count towards your annual CPD requirements.
