Mission Statement
 
The Matchmaking Institute has established the very first Professional Matchmakers Association.

Its core mission is to help build a healthy community, share resources, and maintain quality control in the industry. A major goal of the association is to mainstream the matchmaking industry by removing the stigma and mystery historically attached to it.
