Why Become a Member of the CMA WA
The CMA is the only association in WA that is looks after the interests of those involved in the cabinet making industry. The CMA aims to promote and maintain the standards in the cabinet making industry and helps cabinet makers run their businesses more successfully. The CMA is the only industry association actively representing the interests of cabinet makers to government and industry suppliers.
The CMA provides a ‘no cost’ dispute resolution service for its members and their customers. This provides security for your customers and provides your business with a strong selling point. The service also protects your business from clients seeking to ‘find fault’ as a means of avoiding payment.
Members can use the CMA logo in all their promotional materials and are provided with CMA stickers and a membership certificate. CMA membership provides your business more credibility and ensures peace of mind for your customers, helping members to win business.
CMA Contract Books
All new members receive a complimentary book of 50 CMA contracts. The books comply with the Western Australian Home Building Contracts Act which requires that all private contracts over $7,500 in value are subject to a written contract. If your business is not using written contracts you may be placing yourself in considerable risk. CMA contract books are supplied to members at a cost of $55.00 (including GST), plus postage and handling.
CMA Web Site
All members are listed on the CMA web site, and if the member has its own web site a link to their site is set up. The web site receives a good deal of traffic and many consumers use it to find cabinet makers. CMA members can also purchase profile pages on the site, allowing them to put up pictures of their work as well as more information about their business. New members are provided with a free profile page on the website for the first 6 months.
The CMA does a lot of work with government and government bodies on a broad variety of issues, without the CMA’s input who would represent the industry?
The CMA organizes a variety of social events for its members such as the annual golf day, sundowners, trade nights and network evenings.
Annual membership cost is based on the size of your business. Current annual membership cost is $435.00 for businesses with more than four employees and $390.00 for businesses employing three people or less (costs inclusive of GST). Pro-rata membership fees apply if joining during the calendar year. All applications are screened which on average takes 2 weeks and ensures the professionalism and quality of all new members.
