Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Chemical Development and Marketing Association (CDMA)
With each over fifty years of accomplished service to their members, the Commercial Development Association (CDA) and Chemical Management and Resources Association (CMRA) joined to create the Commercial Development and Marketing Association (CDMA) on July 1, 1999. CDMA was the result of a recognized need for a unified, international organization that strengthens the business professional’s ability to build and grow companies. In May 2009, CDMA joined PDMA, becoming the latter's first Special Interest Group (SIG). To focus CDMA's mission, its name became the Chemical Development and Marketing Association, a Special Interest Group of PDMA. CDMA will continue its mission in support of fostering growth of the chemicals and materials value chains.
