CMA Seeks Wood Diamond Award Submissions

Posted on 08 March 2017 by cradmin

Cabinet Makers AssociationThe Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) announced that its Wood Diamond Awards program is now accepting submissions for the 2017 contest. The CMA’s award program was first offered to the membership in 2010 as a means for members to be recognized by their peers.
The Cabinet Makers Association was incorporated in 1998 by a group of custom cabinet makers who thought the small to mid-size shop needed to network and help each other grow. The association was founded on the principle of sharing experiences and ideas with other members in an effort to promote success and professionalism in the woodworking business. Currently, CMA membership is made up primarily of 20 or fewer employee operations, with the vast majority of those being shops with between one and five employees.
Members have stated that the Wood Diamond Awards have given them the opportunity to become more recognizable in the industry and gain credibility for the craft.
CMA members are encouraged to enter their projects in the 2017 awards program. The 2017 submission form can be accessed at www.cabinetmakers.org/wood-diamond-awards. The entry fee is $50 for each submission received by April 30, 2017. Entries received May 1-15, 2017 will be charged $75 each. No entries will be accepted after May 15, 2017. The winners will be announced on Thursday, July 20, 2017 during AWFS in Las Vegas.

Cabinet Makers Association Is Looking for Help with a Habitat for Humanity Project in Florida Feb. 20

Posted on 09 February 2015 by cradmin

The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) is looking for volunteer industry leaders to join them on Friday, Feb. 20, in Winter Haven, Fla., to join them in helping to build an entire kitchen for a Habitat for Humanity home. The organization is looking for 30 people with custom woodworking skills to step up to supply and build the kitchen for this project in a single day. All of the labor, products and materials are 100 percent donated.

The building session is slated to begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until at least 3 p.m. The CMA is asking that those interested in participating sign up in advance and encourages each participating volunteer to provide a cash donation to forward to the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. The suggested donation is $25 per attendee.

Reservations are required to attend, with a limit of two persons per participating shop. Due to space constraints and anticipated participation requests, the CMA must limit this event to the first 30 persons who reserve their spots to volunteer their time. Clear your schedules and make your travel plans to participate in this worthy cause today!

This program is specifically designed for custom cabinet and custom woodworking shop owners and their senior managers. You do not need to be a member of the Cabinet Makers Association to attend.
