The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) has launched a new and improved website giving members the opportunity to become more involved with the group. CMAE is a non-profit making professional association with members involved in the management of sports clubs (golf, tennis, sailing, rowing, rugby, football, cricket), health & fitness clubs, leisure, city and dining clubs located throughout Europe.
CMAE chief executive officer, Jerry Kilby, said, “The new website will improve our communication with our members and give them the opportunity to talk to us and give feedback on our activities across Europe.
“The fresher look and easier navigation is designed to increase traffic and inform members and non-members alike of the work the CMAE is doing and how they can benefit from increased knowledge about the role of a club manager.
“The new site at www.cmaeurope.org features links to a diary of educational events in the CMAE calendar while the members’ area of the site will include access to a resource library of educational articles, websites and books on club management.”
Visitors to the new site will still be able to access information from the old site in a fresher format, including information on the Certified Club Manager programme, the first internationally recognised professional qualification for club managers in Europe, as well as the latest issue of the CMAE newsletter ClubNetworker.
Jerry Kilby added, “The new website has a new look and feel, it is easier to navigate around and the content has been brought up-to-date. Over time we will be building the content in the members’ only section to give our members an improved range of membership services.”
The CMAE is the pan-European ‘unifying’ organisation for a variety of national professional associations for club managers and secretaries. National associations can affiliate to the CMAE, thereby giving their membership access to the CMAE education programme and other CMAE international activities and events.
