Participate in CMBA

Joining one of CMBA Ontario’s Committees is a great way to network with peers, learn about new trends in the industry, and have a hand in shaping the Association’s direction. If you would like to get more involved with CMBA, or you have some great ideas you’d like to see implemented, now is the time to take action. The Association has plenty of opportunities for volunteers.
