Claiming your credits for any Virtual World Conference sessions that you attend next week will be a simple process. During a session, an attendance code will be announced. After the session, a link to a survey of the session will be available in the session room. You must complete this survey to claim your credits. You will not need to enter your CMAA member number as the platform will automatically record it from your registration. The first question of the survey will ask you to enter the attendance code announced in the session. The remainder of the questions will ask you to rate various aspects of the presentation. You will have 48 hours from the end of a session to claim your credits for the session. Credits will be posted to attendees’ records shortly after Conference.

CMAA sets forth these policies and procedures that will be followed with respect to the Association honoring the education credits requested by CMAA members and other individuals attending CMAA educational programs who seek education credits to maintain their Certified Club Manager (CCM), Certified Chief Executive (CCE), or Master Club Manager (MCM) designation(s).

CMAA is committed to promoting club management as a valued profession and fostering an environment where capability and integrity are valued. Individuals may only receive education credits for educational sessions that they attend in full. Accordingly, credits will only be given for one session occurring in each time block at CMAA-sponsored or approved conferences, programs, and chapter events.

When requesting education credits for sessions attended, individuals shall be required to certify as to the accuracy of the information submitted. Inaccurate or materially false reporting shall be considered a violation of this Credit Reporting Policy.

In the event that an individual requests credits for multiple education sessions occurring during the same time block or otherwise requests credits for education sessions that the individual did not attend in full, the Education Department of CMAA will not recognize such credits.

CMAA has established minimum expectations of behavior for participants at all CMAA programs, events, and conferences both in-person and online. This policy applies to all individuals attending CMAA Events. It is intended to supplement any other applicable CMAA policies, including the CMAA Code of Conduct and Ethics. Review the full policy.
