Professionalism, fiscally responsible and organized are all attributes I would use to describe the level of support provided by the CMC & Associates team. As a non- profit association, it is very important to work with an organization that is cost conscience and one that provides regular budget updates.
CMC not only provides logistical support for many of our committee meetings while at the same time manages our week long leadership training course throughout the year. With a challenging economy, we have maintained member support of this training. A large reason for that continual support is due to an organized training program with key information conveyed to promote not only stability, but growth potential for attendees.
I would recommend CMC & Associates if you are seeking logistical support for an upcoming meeting or organizational training.

CMC & Associates has been managing the YMCA of the USA “Stay With Us” program since 2011. They have quickly become ‘the Face’ of Y Competitive Sport Housing for 5 national sports championships involving over 5,300 athletes and thousands of family and friends. In a nut shell, CMC provides us a registration and management system that could not be as cost effective and with as much expertise in‐house. We have found them to be highly professional with an outstanding service record these past three years. Their detailed attention to a relational focus with each of our teams, parents and coaches has contributed significantly to the success of our annual championship experiences. They are friendly, accommodating and always willing to look at ways to improve upon past performance. They simply excel at all we have asked them to do on our behalf. It is a joy and pleasure to recommend CMC and Associates to anyone looking for a premier, service-oriented housing management company. We are proud to partner with them.

CMC & Associates managed the 2013 International Association of Facilitators North America (IAFNA) conference, for which participants must pre-register for the sessions they wish to attend, and session attendance is limited by presenters’ parameters. CMC did an outstanding job of handling all the registration details, juggling attendees’ and presenters’ special requests, interfacing with the hotel, onsite registration and conference management, and detailed accounting throughout the entire process. I strongly recommend CMC & Associates for your meeting management needs! Their entire staff handles everything for you, with poise, professionalism, and a smile. Meeting management is CMC’s business – let them bring stability and continuity to your organization’s meetings, and free up your internal staff and volunteers to handle your industry-specific needs related to presenters, sponsors, and marketing efforts.

CMC and Associates has been invaluable to us in our recent conference site selection and contract negotiation process. Their experience in and knowledge of the hospitality industry has allowed us to find the best possible venue to suit the particular needs for our group for the next three years. Their professional housing management services have proven to be of great benefit, as well. Their services will provide us long-term cost savings, helping us manage our budget constraints. Most importantly, they understand our essential mission and have made our goals their goals.
