World Conference Preview: Fly High with Colonel Nicole Malachowski
The General Education Session on the afternoon of Monday, February 25, will feature the first woman Thunderbird Pilot, a Combat Veteran, Fighter Squadron Commander, and White House Fellow and Advisor Colonel Nicole Malachowski (USAF, Ret.).

A 21-year veteran of the United States Air Force, Colonel Malachowski wanted to fly military jets from the moment she saw them at her first air show when she was five years old. She achieved that goal – and then some. A leader, a combat veteran, the first woman pilot on the Thunderbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, an instructor, a White House Fellow, and an inductee into the Women in Aviation International Pioneer Hall of Fame, Nicole’s Air Force career exceeded her wildest dreams.

Nicole inspires audiences with lessons from her experiences as a member and leader of exceptional teams. She has faced overwhelming challenges and adversity and has come out on top. When Nicole’s distinguished military career was cut short by a neurological tick-borne illness that, at its worst, left her unable to walk safely or speak intelligibly, she overcame those challenges, as well.

Chapter Credit Reporting Issues Solved
The Education Department would like to thank all CMAA members and chapters for their patience regarding the posting of education credits from chapter meetings.

29 Club Management Professionals Become Certified Club Managers
The Club Management Association of America (CMAA) announces the 29 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. 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.

Uniform System of Financial Reporting for Clubs Update Delayed Due to Forthcoming Changes in Accounting Standards
This year the Club Management Association of America (CMAA) and the Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) hired a project manager and gathered a committee to update the seventh edition of the Uniform System of Financial Reporting for Clubs. After a productive summer, gathering feedback from HFTP members at the Club Forum and additional committee input, the two organizations decided to delay the eighth edition due to pending changes in three key accounting standards and their potential impact on private clubs.

The three accounting standards involve revenue recognition which may impact how a club reports initiation fees, Financial Statement Presentation of Not-for-Profit Entities, and the lease standard. These are major changes which will impact the presentation of a club’s audited financial statements. The two organizations have decided to be cautious as public accounting firms warn that the changes potentially are expected to create confusion as they relate to private clubs. The project has therefore been delayed until after the changes have taken effect (January 1, 2019 and January 1, 2020) and subsequent discussions and fallout from the changes have been reconciled.

The seventh edition of the Uniform System of Financial Reporting for Clubs was published in 2012, with minor updates in 2014. In the absence of the planned 2019 update, the two organizations pledge to provide continuing education to their members on the changing accounting standards. The two organizations plan to reconvene regarding the Eighth edition in the fall of 2019.

Key Findings from RSM’s Trends in Private Clubs Report
RSM recently released its annual Trends in Private Clubs report highlighting operating and financial trends of more than 200 clubs throughout Florida—the state with the highest concentration of  clubs. RSM's research over many years and close observation of the club marketplace clearly demonstrated that  clubs have had to adapt to rapid demographic, societal and financial changes, and there is no sign of those changes slowing down or abating. Clubs have had to react or die.

View the interactive infographic to learn the key findings from our 2018-19 report that club leaders and management should know.  

Proposed Recruitment Change for H-2B Visas
On November 9, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Labor jointly proposed a rule to modernize the recruitment provisions employers seeking H-2B nonimmigrant workers must conduct when applying for a temporary labor certification.
