About CMTMA

 

The College Music Tour Managers Association (CMTMA) was founded in 1990 in order to learn and examine the challenges and solutions of touring with college and university music organizations. Members travel from coast to coast and gather each year to share new resources and discuss management strategies for everything from the first phone call to sponsoring organizations to air freighting equipment overseas.


Dates are set for CMTMA 2017 in Rock Island, Illinois hosted by Augustana College

SEPT 10-12, 2017

Make plans to attend the 2017 CMTMA Conference. Each year, colleagues from across the country gather to learn from each other about new trends, policies, challenges, and successes that impact our tours.


Today the CMTMA has 30 member institutions, with over 40 colleges and universities having attended the annual conference over the course of its 20+ year history. Members find the annual conference inspiring, refreshing, innovative and informative for both new and long-time attendees. If you and your college or university would like more information on the CMTMA annual conference and membership information, please contact the CMTMA President.
