About the SCMA

The Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association (SCMA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of cypress building products to design professionals and consumers.

Through editorial features, trade media articles, show home projects, an engaging social media campaign, and a robust website, the SCMA serves as the voice of the cypress industry and a reliable source of project inspiration and technical information.

Membership and Benefits

Membership in the SCMA is limited to companies engaged in the manufacture of solid cypress products and veneers, as well as those in the business of further processing and distributing these products with the intent to sell.

The SCMA hosts two in-person meetings each year—an Annual Meeting in March and a Mid-Year Meeting in fall—to review promotion activities, network with industry peers and vendors, and share knowledge.

If you’re interested in joining, please email member-services@cypressinfo.org. For a listing of active members, visit the SCMA Buyer’s Guide.
