Alexandria, VA –   The Club Managers Association of America is proud to announce the latest class of CMAA members to have attained the designation of Certified Chief Executive. 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.

Meant to augment the Certified Club Manager designation, seen as the “hallmark of professionalism” in the club industry, the CCE requires managers to maintain Professional or Retired Professional membership status in the Association, to have achieved the CCM designation, to have obtained Honor Society status, to have successfully completed Business Management Institutes Tactical and Strategic Leadership, and to have served as the top executive in a club for a minimum of five years.
