"Charting A Course to Excellence"

Register Today for the 2015 Convention!

CMSA’s Convention theme is “Charting A Course to Excellence” for the 2015 Convention at Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego. Our theme is about creating a way to succeed in today’s market as governmental regulations, military protocols, customer demands and social media constantly shape the way movers do business. This year’s program will help chart your course and be prepared for the upcoming busy season.

The Paradise Point Resort & Spa, the hosting site of the 2015 Convention, is a beautiful property in Mission Bay that offers individual bungalows for all guests. The 44-acre property offers five swimming pools, beach bonfire pits, a marina, five dining venues and much more for all to enjoy. Every ground-floor room has spectacular bay, lagoon or garden views as well as a private patio, mini-fridge and pet-friendly accommodations.

Paradise Point has many outdoor activities available on the property for CMSA members. Besides the five pools on-site, the resort offers a Mission Bay scenic cruise that catches a glimpse of local marine wildlife. Members interested in visiting SeaWorld may buy their tickets on-site and go on the SeaWorld water taxi from the hotel to the theme park. You can avoid traffic and waiting in line by entering through the VIP back gate at the theme park. For outdoor enthusiasts, the resort allows guests to rent sailboats, speedboats, jet skis, kayaks, paddleboard and more. CMSA members can also socialize and participate in friendly competitions playing tennis, basketball, croquet, miniature golf and ping-pong games on-site. The resort’s fitness center is available for members to use during their stay. Open daily, the fitness center has treadmills, weight machines, saunas, steam rooms available for overnight guests.

Wish to venture off the property? There are many attractions close by for CMSA members to see during their stay. Top attractions include downtown San Diego, Old Town, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Mission and Pacific Beach.

This year’s Convention program is well-rounded in market insights for all members’ business strategies. Besides inside information on the 2015 summer season, talks on the local, national and international moving and storage markets are scheduled throughout the week. Speakers include International Association of Movers President Terry Head and Acting AMSA President & CEO Scott Michael to discuss the current trends of the international and national markets. In addition, there will also be a military affairs break out session as well as a van line panel where CMSA members can hear from industry executives and ask questions related to their predictions for 2015.

We have scheduled fun activities for attendees to mingle and network. Our annual golf tournament will be held at the Riverwalk Golf Club in San Diego. Peppered with oak, eucalyptus and palm trees throughout the property, Riverwalk Golf Club has three nine-hole layouts available to customize a truly unique visit every time. The property has four lakes, the San Diego River, nearly 100 bunkers and stunning views for all golf enthusiasts to enjoy.

Our other social event will be the Friday night off-site at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. This high-security venue requires CMSA to provide an attendee list three days in advance of the event. Members must show photo IDs and be on the list in order to be permitted on the premise. Upon arrival, CMSA members will enjoy a unique behind-the-scenes tour of the air station personnel, equipment and its history. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that CMSA members shouldn’t miss out on! Unlike past CMSA Conventions, no tickets will be sold at the Convention due to high-security precautions.

During our popular awards luncheon, the 12 CMSA Chapter Presidents will be honored for their work over the past year in successfully leading their chapter and hosting meetings and fundraisers. The donations that each chapter makes will support the CMSA Scholarship Fund and the Special Olympics. There will also be a special ceremony honoring the 2015 CMSA Scholarship award recipients for their stellar essays and academic and vocational achievements. All scholarship recipients and their families are welcome to attend the luncheon to accept a certificate and say a few words to attendees about their academic pursuits.

Our event is one of the best in the industry! This is a great opportunity to learn about niche market opportunities while enlarging your professional network. Sign up for the 2015 Convention today to start charting your course to excellence!
