Dear CADM Members,

Last December, we announced that our membership leaders, Michelle Robin and Howie Schneur, along with Glenda Sharp, our executive director, were researching options for our new online Career Center. The decision has now been made and the online Career Center will be available before the end of February!  

To provide you with this benefit, CADM has joined the Marketing Career Network (MCN). MCN members include local and national marketing, advertising, and communications associations such as the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and the Business Marketing Association (BMA), so the network offers robust industry coverage. 

As a CADM member, you will have unlimited free access to the national network to search for suitable positions and, if you wish, to post your résumé so that potential employers can review your credentials.  If you are looking for employees, you may post open positions and search résumés for nominal fees.  CADM members may post a job on the national network for 30 days for $200, which is a $100 savings from the nonmember fee. Members may post a job and search resumes’ for 30 days for $400–a $200 savings from the nonmember fee.

You will be able to access the new CADM online Career Center using the “Careers” tab at www.cadm.org.  Thanks to Michelle, Howie, and Glenda for spearheading this effort. We welcome your feedback, so please contact Glenda at 312-849-2236 [CADM] with questions or suggestions. 

Your Tempo entries are due on March 20!  We encourage you not to wait until the last minute to decide which work you want to submit!  The Tempo committee has made some updates to the categories, and, for the first time this year, we are accepting entries online. There are 20 categories to choose from, and new categories include Campaign Microsite, Mobile App, and Viral Video Marketing.  Go to www.cadm.org/tempo-awards for all the information you need to prepare and submit those winning entries, including a complete list of all the categories and some valuable tips on writing a successful award entry! 

Our half-year membership dues begin in February, so if you have colleagues who would like to join us, now may be a good time for them.  An even better offer that is available to new members is 18 months for the price of 12.  Go to www.cadm.org/membership for more information. With our special dues offers, a thought-provoking roster of events, and our new online Career Center, this is an exciting time to join CADM! 

I look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
