Industry and professional association alliance

Thursday, 25 May, 2006


The Australian Institute of Management (AIM) and the Confectionary Manufacturers of Australasia (CMA) announced their new alliance.

The alliance will help the CMA provide its member with access to the latest management and business information as well as make available training and support programmes.

CMA Chairman, Mark Smith said the industry recognises that it must act now to ensure future global competitiveness. "We need to be innovative in our thinking to create and sustain future growth. As an industry body the CMA has a clear role to prepare the confectionery supply chain for the business challenges of the future."

The CMA represents 220 businesses from all parts of the supply chain in the confectionary industry, with an estimated 15,000 employees indirectly employed across Australia and New Zealand. While the size of the businesses varies enormously, they have a consistent need to develop the professional management skills of their managers.

The AIM and CMA alliance reflects the trend of bringing together business disciplines. Industry and professional associations are recognising that for industry to continue its success, they need to embrace excellence in management practices, not just expertise in their related discipline.
