Melissa Low


Alexandria, VA—The Club Management Association of America (CMAA) announces the six newest club management professionals to attain the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM). Established in 1965, the CCM designation is the hallmark of professionalism in club management. It is a valuable, internationally recognized, and widely respected mark of an individual’s commitment to professional development and the club industry.

The CCM designation indicates that a club management professional has completed a rigorous and extensive course of study and training and demonstrates a dedication to proficiency and expertise in club management. To receive the CCM designation, one must invest time in specified education requirements, attend at least one World Conference and Club Business Expo, and maintain activity within their local chapter. After these conditions have been met, the individual must pass the CCM Exam.

The members of CMAA who attained the CCM requirements are:

  • Joe Brown, CCM, MBA, Des Moines Golf & Country Club, W. Des Moines, IA
  • Joseph Callison, CCM, Belle Meade Country Club, Nashville, TN
  • Erica Gilly, CCM, Portland Golf Club, Vancouver, WA
  • Ivo Nedelchev, CCM, The Old Collier Golf Club, Naples, FL
  • Jorge Rivera, CCM, Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, GA
  • Amanda L. Zimmerman, CCM, The Stanwich Club, Greenwich, CT

The Club Management Association of America extends its sincere congratulations to these newly certified professionals and encourages them to continue their professional development in the future. See the CCM designation and requirements for more information.
