I am honored by your presence and overjoyed you took the time out of your busy schedule to join us. When a group of us came together with the idea of creating a new industry association, some of the thinking was met with optimism as well as hope for acceptance of a member – driven organization focused on providing thought leadership, education and training about the new marketplace. The intent of the CCMCA is to partner with existing associations, enterprise organizations, brands, agencies and provide an innovative approach to what we are calling a Total Market Enterprise™ (TME) organization. With over $300B spent on marketing and advertising services in the United States between the general market and multicultural marketing services, we know this is not going away. Today promises to be an exciting day filled with opportunities to gain clarity and learn from some of the industry’s experts. We welcome your feedback and will look for opportunities moving forward to help members navigate during this dynamic shift within the marketing and communications industry. Sincerely, Jeffrey L.
