We are the innovative association trail blazers you need to succeed. Founded in 1996, we started with the simple goal of providing meeting and event organization. Since then, CMG has grown into a team of association junkies providing full-service management from meeting planning to membership management.

The bottom line is that our team is dedicated to partnering with you to power your organization forward. We diligently work together to collaborate and execute our next great idea to make our client’s vision a reality. Our goal is to use knowledge, experience and tools to help our clients go where they have never been before. Our team is experienced in propelling our clients’ organizations to the top tier by increasing membership, value and meeting attendance.

Here’s what we have going for us:

  • Located in Western Pennsylvania, just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
  • Named one of Pittsburgh’s Best Places to Work by the Pittsburgh Business Times every year since 2009.
  • Staffed with the best in the business, we align our clients’ leadership vision with tangible direction. Our consultative team creates strategies and delivers execution road maps to drive results.
