Women in Club Management

WinCMAA LogoThis group was formed with the purpose of advancing women in club management through educational and networking opportunities, most of which take place at the CMAA World Conference, such as a Women in Club Management “education path” and round-table sessions. 

CMAA hopes to provide greater support for Women in Club Management by tapping into the strong female GM presence within the industry and CMAA membership base.
