Alexandria, VA – The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) is proud to announce that 18 club management professionals have attained the designation of Certified Club Manager. 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.

The CCM designation was established in 1965 and since then has been the hallmark of professionalism in club management and is the cornerstone of CMAA’s recognition program. It is a valuable and widely-respected mark of a manager’s commitment to professional development and the club industry. In order to receive the CCM designation, one must invest time in specified education requirements, attend at least one World Conference on Club Management 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.
