2019 MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION

At CMA we offer a “basic” membership package to any church, ministry or individual at no cost. This package provides you with preferred pricing at all seminars, a free subscription to our newsletter, free referrals to local experts, and discounted pricing on all resources available in our store.

We also offer two premium membership options that give you access to even more benefits and resources, including 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.

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). For more information on how you can take advantage of this valuable assessment please contact our office.

*** E-Consulting: Have a question about a business practice, tax issue, employment regulation or operational issue? You can send a quick e-mail (membership number included) to our office at [email protected] outlining the issue and we’ll get back to you with an answer, usually within 24 hours. This is an unlimited service, so it can be used as often as needed throughout the year. The service is limited to providing general information and is not designed to provide specific answers to specific questions. So, when sending in your questions always remember to frame them within a general context while noting the specific issue you are concerned about.
