The Association seeks to encourage high editorial and journalistic standards and to compile industry research and data for the membership. City and regional magazines are promoted as a major media market. CRMA represents member magazines on major national and regional policy issues (legal journalistic, commercial, and political), as well as furthers the interests of the membership.
