The History of CMGMA

Chattanooga Medical Group Management Association (CMGMA) was founded in 1986.  Our organization is associated with the national Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) and the state of Tennessee Medical Group Management Association (TMGMA).  Several of our past officers have advanced to serve both on the state and national level.
