Welcome to the Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) Membership Site

The CMA Is Where Shipping Business Gets Done!

The Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) is a non-profit organization, headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, that was built by its members, for its members, and as such is one of kind. It is an industry association made up of individuals representing every aspect of shipping, maritime, technology, and international trade. Over 700 members worldwide, an annual conference and trade show attracting 2,000+ attendees, a myriad of social, education, and sports events throughout the year, and the CMA Education Foundation all make for a vibrant, ever-growing, and thriving association.

Unlike many similar organizations that are supported largely by corporate members and sponsors, the CMA’s voting membership is comprised only of individuals. From bunker brokers and tug-boat operators to lawyers and underwriters, to ship owners, brokers, and managers, shippers, and merchants of all kinds of cargo, each CMA member has an equal and separate vote.

The CMA was created to build a community of shipping and maritime people and remains a conduit for the exchange of information and a source of camaraderie, networking, and fellowship that is unique and vital to the shipping community. Incorporated in 1985, the CMA celebrates its 36th anniversary in 2021. It prospers with over 700 members, from 30+ countries, representing nearly 500 companies and organizations.
