Industry and Marketing Research. There is much to be learned from professional and trade associations.
The Catholic Media Association hosts the Catholic Media Conference (CMC) each year, where decision makers in Catholic communications and those interested in the field come together to share information, to learn about the changing industry, and to network. CMA allows members to connect with each other to exchange ideas. In addition, CMA connects its members directly to bishops and the Vatican through conferences and webinars. CMA provides a number of services to keep Catholic journalists and their colleagues strong. Every year, CMA prints a current directory of organizational and individual members. New members receive a complimentary directory upon joining CMA. The annual Catholic Media Conference allows members to gather and discuss issues concerning Catholic journalists. The recent addition of Master Camps and Education Tracks creates tailored experiences for those seeking professional development.
