In many professions, a successful career is marked by an appropriate degree of professional development, verified by a credible certification program and recognized by both the public and one’s peers. The Certified Club Manager designation has been the hallmark of professionalism in club management since 1965 and is the cornerstone of CMAA’s member recognition program. It is a valuable and widely-respected mark of a manager’s commitment to professional development and the club industry.
As with its education programs, CMAA’s recognition program is a dynamic, continuing process. It includes two levels of further recognition: CMAA’s prestigious Honor Society and the Master Club Manager (MCM) designation. A, Certification Maintenance Requirement (CMR) ensures that managers continue to develop professionally. Under this program, CCMs will have five years in which to attain specified certification credits for recertification. Click here for additional information on the CMR. The entire program is under the jurisdiction of the Certification Committee with oversight provided by the Association’s Board of Directors. It is the committee’s responsibility to consider suggestions from the members and to ensure that the certification program adapts to the ever-changing club management environment.
The Certified Chief Executive (CCE), was introduced in 2008. Click here for more information on the CCE. Enrolling in the CCM Process
1. Enrollment in the CCM process will automatically happen once a member earns 30 CMAA education credits (combination of CMI and Chapter Education credits). Members will receive notification from CMAA’s Education Department once milestone is met.
2. While National Headquarters staff will make every effort to maintain an accurate record of each member’s certification credits, it is the responsibility of individual members to keep track of credits they have earned. Members should check with their Chapter Managing Director, Secretary and/or the National Headquarters to ensure that all credits earned are recorded. A complete credit history may be viewed on CMAA’s website.
