The Category Management Association Advancing Professional Standards in Category Management The Association began early in 2003 through an informal newsletter that began circulating with an anonymous discussion group exchanging ideas and advice. An interview with Progressive Grocer prompted the formation of a formal organization in November 2004.The association has grown by simple word-of-mouth into a dynamic member-driven resource for sharing best practices, information and advice. The Resource Directories continue to expand by category and channel. Each of these directories has a matching Discussion Group, some of which are very active and some of which sit empty until someone starts a thread. The Share Groups have been created to fill the need to real-time meetings and collaboration with speakers sharing ideas and expertise across sales and marketing functions.International Chapters have been added by request, along with university resources, professional coursework listings, new discussion group areas, and 'Virtual Conference Rooms for members to hold small meetings as well as large webcasts. The association seeks to serve the needs of its members and guests, creating 'buckets' for information to be amassed, and creating a 'place' for interaction among peers.
