THE CLUB MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA AT A GLANCE
Founded in 1927, the Club Management Association of America (CMAA) is the largest professional association for club management professionals with 6,800 members. Our members contribute to the success of more than 2,500 country, golf, athletic, city, faculty, military, town, and yacht clubs.
The objectives of the Association are to promote relationships between club management professionals and other similar professions; to encourage the education and advancement of members; and to provide the resources needed for efficient and successful club operations.
WHAT WE DO
EDUCATION - NETWORKING - DEVELOPMENT
In many professions, a successful career is marked by an appropriate degree of professional development, verified by a credible certification program and recognized by both the public and one's peers. The Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation has been the hallmark of professionalism in club management since 1965 and is the cornerstone of CMAA's certification program. It is a valuable and widely-respected mark of a manager's commitment to professional development and the club industry.
As with its education programs, CMAA’s certification program is a dynamic, continuing process. It includes two levels of further recognition: CMAA's prestigious Honor Society and the Master Club Manager (MCM) designation.
The entire certification program is under the jurisdiction of the Professional Development Committee with oversight provided by CMAA’s Board of Directors. It is the Professional Development Committee’s responsibility to consider suggestions from the members and to ensure that the certification program adapts to the ever-changing club management environment.
