The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) has launched a drive to attract new members.
The Association, whose members are involved in the management of golf, sports, health, fitness, leisure, city and dining clubs in 22 countries throughout Europe and the Middle East, is promoting the benefits of membership, including professional qualification and education, as part of a special package available until 30 November 2009.
New members signing up before the deadline will receive membership for 2010, plus the remainder of 2009, as well as a four-CD box set containing all 58 educational presentations made at the 2009 World Conference on Club Management, including audio recordings and seminar notes.
CMAE Chief Executive Officer, Jerry Kilby, said: “Club managers, like all business managers, are under pressure to deliver results in what remains challenging economic conditions. Yet those managers who invest in their professional development, through education and qualification such as the CMAE’s Certified Club Manager (CCM), have been able to demonstrate their value to their clubs.
“For those involved in club management, there is no better time to evaluate your position and to reinforce and enhance your professional status – and membership of the CMAE is the ideal way to achieve this.”
A special leaflet on membership benefits has been produced and is also available to download on the CMAE website www.cmaeurope.org
