The Master Club Manager program recognizes the importance of significant, long-lasting contributions made by club managers to  their clubs, their professions and their communities. In addition, the MCM designation in club management provides the means by which experienced club managers can make a significant written contribution to their industry.

In 1990, the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) Board of Directors delegated the task of developing its MCM designation to its Certification Committee. Since that time the requirements and procedures which comprise this MCM Portfolio have been implemented to yield a meaningful and challenging, but achievable, professional development program for CMAA’s membership.
