CMA Is Turning 25 - Celebrate With Us!

Its hard to believe that more than two decades have already passed since the General Assembly came together to provide the citizens of the State with a single point of contact for information regarding the States minority population.

Our accomplishments since that day are too numerous to list but certainly worthy of a celebration.

We hope you’ll join us June 2018, as we salute the past 25 years and look forward to the next 25 ahead of us.
