Benefits of Membership
ELIGILITY TO GAIN THE CCM DESIGNATION
Only CMAE members can apply to sit the CCM exam and join the elite group of club managers from all over the world that have demonstrated a detailed and in-depth knowledge of their chosen profession.
The CMAE, together with our regions and affiliate partners across Europe regularly stage one and two-day educational events, from workshops and seminars to conferences. CMAE members will enjoy being welcomed at any of these events, giving access to an unrivalled network of educational opportunities.
The CMAE organises two conferences a year, the first of which is the AGM and Annual Conference and in October, we join with our friends at the CMAA in the organisation of BMI International, a truly beneficial 5 day learning experience with club managers from all over the world. CMAE members who are currently enrolled as MDP delegates benefit from complimentary registration for the CMAA World Conference in the USA each year, which usually costs around $750!
Membership of the CMAE gives you the chance to meet and build relationships with colleagues doing the same jobs at clubs all over Europe, and also in the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia and many other regions of the world. These relationships can not only be personally beneficial, but also for members of the club where you work. You can help them perhaps visit and experience some of the great clubs of the world, and this will help you, as their club manager, clearly establish yourself as the professional club manager and the source of expertise and knowledge in your field.
MEMBERS' ZONE ON CMAE WEBSITE
We have made many improvements to the members-only part of the CMAE website in 2009, and in this part of the site, exclusive to CMAE members, you will find: articles and resources to view and/or download on a wide range of industry topics; a list of other CMAE members to contact; and also details of exclusive and preferential rates for goods and services from CMAE Corporate Partners.
ONLINE BUSINESS NETWORKING & SUPPORT
We invite all CMAE members to participate in our business networking group in LinkedIn – exclusively for CMAE members. This group will enable you to share thoughts and ideas with other CMAE members, ask for help and support or start discussions and debates on issues of the day.
All CMAE members receive ClubNetworker, our monthly e-newsletter which is packed full of information and news about the activities of the CMAE, regions and affiliate partners, industry news and jobs, events diary and much more.
CLUBHOUSE EUROPE MAGAZINE
CMAE members receive a free hard copy of our quarterly magazine, Clubhouse Europe.
OTHER ONLINE PUBLICATIONS
Every month, the CMAE provides its members with copies of various other online industry publications, including the CMAA’s Club Management magazine; Leisure Management magazine; Sports Management magazine; Health Club Management magazine; Leisure Opportunities magazine and Golf Inc.
CAREER OPPORTUNITIES SERVICE
With the help of our partners Colt Mackenzie McNair, the CMAE provides CMAE members with access to job opportunities, careers advice and most recently, the ability to advertise for staff free of charge on the web.
ACCESS TO OTHER CLUBS
Perhaps one of the most under-valued benefit is that as a CMAE member, you will be welcomed at the vast majority of clubs around the world.
EXCLUSIVE & PREFERENTIAL RATES FROM CMAE CORPORATE PARTNERS
The CMAE is fortunate to have so many blue-chip brands supporting our initiatives, and CMAE members enjoy exclusive and preferential rates on goods and services provided by many of these companies, providing you and your club with savings far beyond the annual CMAE membership fee.
