There are contractors. There are accountants. But, construction financial professionals are a breed apart. For them, day-to-day accounting is only part of the job. From job cost control and the contract lifecycle to risk management and surety relationships, CFMA is the only organization dedicated to the specific needs of construction financial professionals and service providers.
The Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) is “The Source & Resource for Construction Financial Professionals” and the only nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the construction financial professional.
CFMA is a professional association, not a trade association. When you join CFMA your membership stays with you, even if you change employers. Even if your employer paid for your CFMA membership, you are the member, not the employer.
The Massachusetts Chapter Officers & Directors are local construction financial managers who have our interest in mind when hosting programs and seminars.
In order to become a member of the CFMA of Massachusetts Chapter, you must join CFMA at the national level.
CFMA National offices are headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey.
