Certified Chief Executive (CCE)
The Certified Chief Executive (CCE) designation was developed to recognize those managers who have shown the ability to successfully serve as the most senior manager in a club. The CCM designation is still the "hallmark of professionalism" within the club industry. The CCE designation is meant to augment the CCM designation, not replace it.
Eligibility Requirements & Application
In order to qualify for the CCE designation, members must:
- Be a Professional or Retired Professional member of CMAA;
- Have achieved the CCM designation;
- Have obtained Honor Society Status;
- Have successfully completed BMI Tactical Leadership and BMI Strategic Leadership;
- Have served as the top executive in a club (i.e., GM, COO, CEO) for a minimum of five years (can be from multiple clubs);
- Have either mentored an entry-mid level manager through one specialization of the MID Program on CMAA University or completed a one year documented mentorship;
- Submit the CCE Petition Form to CMAA;
- Submit a current résumé documenting their previous positions;
- Submit a notarized CCE Verification Form from their current club president verifying that they have served as the top executive for at least five years (if a member has not been at their current club as the chief executive for five years, a notarized CCE Verification Form is required from their previous club(s) to verify the five-year period); and
- A $75 administrative fee must be included with the CCE Petition. This fee covers the administration and recognition of the CCE designation.
