Member Benefits

What do I get as a member of MCA-I?

Professional Development

To truly succeed, a media professional must be dedicated to continual learning—marketing, new technology, communication expertise, industry trends, best business practices and the latest market research. MCA-I is dedicated to providing its members the vast amount of information and training needed to excel in their profession.


MCA-I provides excellent networking opportunities. MCA-I serves its members through local chapters all across North America and around the world. Our members constantly tell us they’ve made their best connections—new clients, potential jobs, strategic partners, needed expertise, and global resources, and some of their best friends—through MCA-I activities. Our members tell us that the international and local connections—including chapter participation, on-going development, committee involvement and the powerful networking—are worth infinitely more than the dues they invest.

Social Connections and Resources

MCA-I members have access to a wealth of invaluable resources to augment their professional activities, such as our on-line articles and tutorials. We also deliver scheduled and instantaneous communications, such as our eNews, LeadersLinks and Connect newsletters.


MCA-I provides our members with myriad marketing opportunities. For example, our interactive online Find A Pro™ and MCA-I Membership Directory literally market our members’ unique talents and services to anyone looking for a media professional.


MCA-I offers its members the recognition that professionals not only deserve, but also often need. Our flagship recognition program—the MCA-I WAVE Awards—recognizes excellence in the creation of film, video, interactive multimedia, live and internet programs. This unique judging competition awards not only the most creative, but also the most effective communication.
