February 2016 CMAA CareerHQ CMCI is proud to announce that David Eberly, CCM, Deputy Assistant Inspector General at the City of New Orleans, passed his certification exam, making him the 3,000th CCM! The CCM program has grown rapidly over the past several years. The annual total number of new CCMs has increased each year since 2012. In 2015, CMCI recognized 458 new CCMs, which set a new record high. Given 2016's already strong application and professional construction manager course enrollment numbers, CMCI anticipates that the number of new CCMs in 2016 will quickly surpass those of 2015.
