As the alumni association of the Commonwealth Management Institute, the Commonwealth Managers Association’s mission is to promote professional development and networking opportunities for managers within Virginia state and local governments.

CMI participants acquire the necessary tools to be innovative, creative and forward-thinking. The association continues this learning process while enhancing the ability of midlevel leaders and managers to operate in and adapt to the rapidly changing environment of government.

CMA goals

Through conferences and other educational events, the CMA provides continuous training and development opportunities for midlevel Virginia state and local government employees and also serves as a vehicle to build and maintain a peer network.

CMA goals include:

  • To aid and promote CMI and its work.
  • To enhance communication and cooperative efforts among managers in all branches of state government.
  • To carry on and foster the goals and principles of managerial education as espoused by CMI.
  • To develop, strengthen and utilize the bonds existing between the institute and its alumni, and among the alumni themselves.
