Ten New Certified Club Managers Named

Kyle Jennings

Alexandria, VA –The Club Management Association of America (CMAA) announces the ten club management professionals who have most recently attained the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM). The CCM designation indicates that a club management professional has completed a rigorous course of study and training and shows a dedication to proficiency and expertise in club management.

Established in 1965, the CCM designation is the hallmark of professionalism in club management. It is a valuable, internationally recognized, and widely respected mark of a manager’s commitment to professional development and the club industry. To receive the CCM designation, one must invest time in specified education requirements, attend at least one World Conference and Club Business Expo, and maintain activity within their local chapter. After these conditions have been met, the individual must pass the CCM Exam. Attainment of the CCM title shows a long-term commitment to professional development and club management.
