Your National and Chapter dues renew separately each year. National renewals are mailed out in late summer to the billing address in your account. Payments are due by October 31 to ensure your membership does not lapse. Chapter dues will be billed from the Chapter office itself and may be on a different schedule than National dues.

No. When logging into your account, your username is your primary email address. The National website does not connect directly to the Chapter websites so your username to log into your local Chapter website is likely different from your login.

Your membership goes with you! Please contact Alanna Eckard at CMAA HQ and provide your new employment information so we can update your record and make sure you continue to receive CMAA correspondence. If your new job is in a new Chapter area, you will be instructed through the Chapter transfer process. Please contact your local Chapter as well with your new information so they can keep their records up to date.

No. CMAA memberships are held by the individual and are non-transferable, non-refundable. Even if you leave the club industry, you may switch to Associate status and remain a member of CMAA if you wish!

Log into your account on, click on your email address in the top right corner, and select “Education Credits” in the drop-down menu that appears. If you have any questions about your education credits, contact Sonya Peterbark or Brian Watkins in the Education Department.

CMAA bylaws state that a Professional member who is unemployed on November 1 and who is actively seeking employment in the club management field may be continued on the membership roster for up to one year without payment of dues (we call this “Continuation Status”). During continuation status, the member will enjoy all benefits of CMAA membership. When they become employed, they will be charged a pro-rated National dues fee for the remainder of the current membership year. If the member does not become employed by the time dues renewals are billed, they will automatically be transferred to the Associate membership type and charged the Associate membership dues rate.

When you first join CMAA, you will pay both National and Chapter dues in one transaction. However, dues renewals are billed separately from the National and Chapter offices so payments should be submitted to the appropriate office.

No. You can attend as many or as few CMAA events as you would like. As long as you continue to adhere to the membership requirements for your membership category and your dues are paid, you are considered an active CMAA member.

Yes, your current digital membership card will get you into most PGA TOUR, USGA, and LPGA events (The Masters and The Ryder Cup excluded). Simply present your membership card and a valid photo ID at the will call tent on the day of the event to receive a grounds pass for the day.
