Our Mission

CRMA's purpose is to facilitate professional development and training opportunities for member magazines and opportunities to exchange information and ideas. The Association seeks to encourage high editorial and journalistic standards and to compile industry research and data for the membership. City and regional magazines are promoted as a major media market. CRMA represents member magazines on major national and regional policy issues (legal journalistic, commercial, and political), as well as furthers the interests of the membership.
