2020 MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

At CMA we offer a Basic Membership to any church, ministry, or individual at no cost. This includes a free subscription to our quarterly newsletter, free referrals to local experts, and access to White Papers in our store.

We also offer a Premium Membership that gives you access to even more benefits and resources, including e-consulting services* from our staff and industry experts, and access to a “ministry self-evaluation” instrument** used to complete an assessment of your business and operational practices. This will show you where you might need to do a little work to stay in compliance with application regulations practices for churches and faith-based ministries. For more information regarding e-consulting, click HERE.

The challenge to stay current and in compliance is a never-ending task for all nonprofits, as each year dozens of new tax laws, employment pronouncements, and court rulings are handed out. At CMA we are committed to helping you and your ministry stay current on the issues by offering invaluable information and resources on tax, employment, business, and compliance issues at prices that won’t break your budget.

**Ministry Compliance Evaluation: This comprehensive self-evaluation instrument helps you examine all the major areas of activity and operations, from the boardroom to risk-management to bookkeeping and accounting practices to identify areas where you may need to improve current practices to keep your ministry compliant with current regulations and recommended best practices. CMA is also available to complete an assessment. The assessment comes with a written report that identifies areas of risk and non-compliance and includes specific recommendations where applicable for how to resolve the issue(s).
