Latest CMA news: new Partnership with the National Trust

We are extremely pleased to announce that we have agreed an new corporate partnership with the National Trust. The National Trust is the leading employer of Rangers and Countryside Managers in the UK and our new partnership will have many benefits both for the National Trust and the CMA. Working together closely we will help to support the professional development of relevant National Trust staff. The partnership will also lead to a greater number of study days, good practice case studies and (we hope) a more active membership generally. The partnership will take time to build and it has come at a time when the CMA has some major developments in progress including a new website and support contract so please bear with us over the coming months.
