Leading the CPA Magazine team will be Okey Chigbo, formerly editor ofCAmagazineCMA editor-in-chief Mara Gulens also helped develop the title and the new organization’s membership engagement strategy. Next year, she oversees the new mag’s “professional pages” and will head up a CPA Canada newsletter. 

“It’s kind of bittersweet, it’s sad to end that magazine,” said Gulens about the final edition of CMA. She had been at the helm since February 2011, supported by a team of freelancers.

The November/December issue of CMA is billed as a collector’s edition, with editorial looking back at over 90 years of the CMA (Certified Management Accountants) association.
