The Business Management Institute (BMI): The Core of the Lifetime Professional Development Program

In the early 1980s, CMAA’s leaders saw the need for a formal academic program for club industry professionals. Taking into consideration that managers at all phases of their careers need instruction, education or inspiration, the concept of the “lifetime professional development program” was born and nurtured. The vision was realized as a multi-campus-based program that provides tangible career benchmarks by which managers can track their progress and strive for various levels of competency, including a respected certification.
