Providing All CMAA Members with Access to Four Free PDHs

Aloha CMAA Hawaii Membership!

Since the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been hearing from our CMAA members and CCM about how this crisis is affecting their operations, and projects. With some, the impact has been far greater, and in others, construction projects continue with social distancing and increased safety protocols based on CDC recommendations.

But the one thing we have heard many times is the need to help find PDHs to maintain certifications, or to pursue professional development.

So to assist members, CMAA National is opening a selection of online, on-demand education library for free. These sessions are now available directly to you:

•             Building Moral Muscle for the Individual and the Organization
•             Lessons Learned from Generations of Women Construction & Program Managers
•             A Case for an Inclusive Culture, and Why It Matters
•             Aligning Tools and Technology for Project Success

Simply login to the CMAA website. Then search for “Focus19 On-Demand Conference Sessions – Full Set” in order to claim your four complimentary education sessions and PDHs.

Focus19 Conference Sessions

There are also Live Webinars on the CMAA National site that are available to all members with an active membership.
Live webinars offer 1 CCM Recertification Point and 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH).
If you can’t attend at the regularly scheduled time, webinars are recorded and made available to all CMAA members.
