The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) has formed a new networking group, the CMAE Young Managers Group, which was launched at an inaugural event on 30th May.
The CMAE Young Managers Group is targeted at CMAE members who are aged 35 or under and who will be invited to attend quarterly events specifically for the group to enhance their career development and provide a network of other young managers.
The first event took place at Roehampton Club on 30th May, with 41 delegates in attendance and featured an inspirational talk from keynote speaker 4 x Paralympic Gold Medallist Marc Woods, who is also Chairman of CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity). Delegates then enjoyed a tour of the host venue Roehampton Club before Marc Newey CCE explained how the CMAE pathway has helped Roehampton Club achieve Investors in People Gold Award.
Adam Walsh CMDip, General Manager of Farleigh Golf Club, is the man behind the initiative and led round table discussions with attendees to understand what the membership wants from the group and agree aims going forward.
Speaking of the inaugural event, Adam commented: “It’s extremely encouraging to see colleagues coming together from so many different backgrounds with the common goal of improving themselves. I feel that the group will create a relevant reference point for all of the under 35’s from varied parts of the leisure and hospitality industry under the banner of CMAE for inspiration, education and networking. It’s a pleasure to be involved and we look forward to building on the success of our inaugural session in the future.”
