The Admissions Committee reviews all CMT Association applications for full member status. This includes reviewing all documentation and examples of work submitted, as well as reviewing the required 3 sponsor questionnaires and resolving any outstanding issues that arise during the application process. The Committee then makes recommendations to the Board of Directors for acceptance or rejection.
Responding to demand from many technicians and CMT Association members, the Board of Directors and staff formed the Advocacy Committee to evaluate actionable ways to increase understanding, awareness and opportunity in the financial marketplace for technical analysis and its practitioners. The Advocacy Committee seeks ways to address the following:
The Audit Committee works independently from the Finance Committee to assist the board in its oversight responsibility relating to:
The CMT Curriculum and Test Committee (CTC) is tasked with reviewing the development of the CMT curriculum, from aggregation to publication, and reviewing the contents of the exam. The CTC also coordinates the exam scoring process after every exam cycle.
The Dow Award Committee reviews all final Dow Award submissions, which includes assessing all submissions to determine their ability to enhance the understanding of market action and the concepts of technical analysis. The committee also assesses the overall quality of the research to make a recommendation of finalists to the Board of Directors.
The Ethics & Standards Committee investigates all ethical complaints filed in accordance with the CMT Association constitution and by-laws. Additionally, it considers revisions or modifications to the Code of Ethics before changes are presented to the membership for their approval. This committee works in close cooperation with the Rules Committee to ensure that all complaints are held in the strictest of confidence.
The Finance Committee works closely with the Executive Director and is responsible for overseeing the financial management of the Association performed by the Association staff, advising the board on important issues regarding the current and future state of the Association’s financial condition, and assisting the board in ensuring the Association is in good fiscal health.
The Global Development Committee works with local chapters and members to identify and develop areas for new market and chapter growth, as well as working to engage local volunteers in high target areas.
The Journal Committee publishes an annual journal for the CMT Association membership containing in-depth research articles and papers on technical subjects, submitted by the membership and others in the academic and analytical community.
The primary responsibilities of the Leadership Development Committee are to identify, recruit, and nominate persons to serve as members and officers of the board, and to provide development opportunities for board membership. Identification of well-qualified candidates will result from a carefully planned process designed to obtain influential, knowledgeable, and representative leadership from the organization.
The Long-Range Planning Committee (LRP) develops and oversees LRP strategy sessions to develop near-term, mid-term and long-term goals for the Association and Program. The LRP Committee is comprised of self-selected board members, who meet several times each year virtually and once a year in person to develop mindful intermediate and long-range plans for the Association.
The Rules Committee conducts an annual review of the CMT Association Constitution, as well as encouraging members to submit suggestions and proposals which the Committee reports to the Board of Directors. Only members in good standing are eligible to serve on this committee.
The Seminar Committee puts together the CMT Association Annual Symposium held in New York every spring. The symposium is devoted to exploring emerging techniques in the field of technical analysis as well as re-examining changing points of view on more classic styles.
