Three Club Management Professionals
Achieve Certified Club Manager (CCM) Designation

Kyle Jennings

Alexandria, VA – The Club Management Association of America (CMAA) announces the three club management professionals who have most recently 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. Approximately 1,500 CMAA members hold this prestigious designation.

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 long-term commitment to professional development and the club industry. In order to receive the CCM designation, one must invest time in specified educational requirements through the Business Management Institutes, attend the 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.

The following club managers successfully met all CCM requirements in August:

  • Chris Kennedy, CCM, Ironwood Country Club, Palm Desert, CA
  • Darron McDaniel, CCM, Houston Racquet Club, Houston, TX
  • Scott Spencer, CCM, The Union Club, Cleveland, OH

The Club Management Association of America extends its sincere congratulations to these newly certified professionals and encourages them to continue their professional development in the future. For more information on the CCM designation and requirements, please visit
