Professional Development is an important component of FMA's activities and one we wish to build.
Continuous learning and development is important for any professional today, regardless of the field in which we work. Football players intrinsically understand this. Just as football and its tactics, techniques and issues are constantly evolving, so is the 'business' of working in media.
In terms of the game itself, those working in football media have an important role to play in helping to build and develop the understanding and knowledge of football and to contribute to developing a football culture. In the contemporary world of a 24/7 media cycle, where it's relatively simple for anyone to 'publish', FMA has a role to maintain and improved professional standards of practice.
FMA appreciates the support of the Johnny Warren Football Foundation for its Professional Development activity.
