Overview

CMA presents a Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual who has elevated the profession of marketing through excellence and volunteerism over the last 20+ years. This award has been presented from 1999 to 2009 and then again from 2019 - 2020.

This award builds on and aligns well with the existing Marketer of the Year award, which has been in existence for many years, at the annual CMA Awards. The Marketer of the Year winner is selected by a committee as chosen by the CEO and is given to a Canadian who is nominated due to their displays of outstanding marketing acumen and leadership over the last year.  Specific criteria include Marketing Leadership, Business Success, and Industry Support / Contribution.

Who Should Enter

Any individual may nominate a Canadian marketing practitioner who has demonstrated their commitment to elevate the marketing profession over the last 20+ years. The nominee must have their Chartered Marketer Designation and/or be a CMA Corporate Member. 

The application (self-submitted or on their behalf) window is from mid-July through mid-September and contains:

  • Brief Biography / Overview
  • Marketing Leadership – How the nominee demonstrated exceptional marketing acumen and leadership in their organization over the last 20 years.
  • Business Success - Examples of how these skills translated into business success for the organization over the last 20 years.
