What’s in it for members?



An opportunity to gain a globally-recognised certificate in club management and to be able to prove beyond any doubt that you are qualified to do the job you are doing.  



Workshops, seminars and a European Management Diploma, together with a programme of 5 day residential courses in club management, involving en route, experiential learning and core competency training, but also a stimulating means of adding to or refreshing current knowledge.




Opting to undertake the CMAE CCM certification programme and other CMAE endorsed club management education programmes permits managers to accelerate their career prospects both within their current employment and elsewhere.




With monthly editions of our online Club Networker, together with regular press releases and attendance at our varied regional educational events on hot topics, members can stay ahead of the market by being more aware of the latest techniques and good practice.



The existing membership has a vast reservoir of ability and know-how which is readily available for other members to benefit from. Members of the CMAE subscribe to the philosophy of sharing best practice throughout the industry, so feel free to ask for advice, your colleagues are there to help.




Members participating in regional, European or international events such as the World Conference on Club Management, have a tremendous opportunity to compare notes, learn ‘new tricks’, gain a new perspective and share ideas with their counterparts from other parts of their region or other countries across the globe.
