Joe Perdue, CCM, CHE

In developing the BMI program, CMI recognized the need for a multi-day workshop to assist members working toward CMAA's Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation. Typically offered twice each year, this intensive, 40-hour course provides review sessions based on the club management competency areas and the learning objectives identified in the Certification Study Guide (available from CMAA).
