Mailman has a program called sync_members that will do exactly what you 
require. You could get clever and automate the CRM extraction to the same file 
every time, conveniently placed on a share accessible to mailman.

Then set-up a crontab job to sync that file with the mailman database. It will 
remove mailman users that don't appear on the list and add new ones 

Should work to the tee.
