Access to Education Opportunities.

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.

Biannual Conferences.

CMAE organises an Annual Conference for its European members to compliment the annual CMAA World Conference.  CMAE members who are also MDP delegates also gain complimentary access to the CMAA World Conference which represents a saving of $950 !

The Global Network of Club Managers

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, to clearly establish yourself as the professional club manager and the source of expertise and knowledge in your field.

Members’ Zone on CMAE website

The CMAE members’ zone on their website allows members to track their education credits as well as using it as an educational resource to access a host of ‘best practice’ articles, white papers and benchmarking articles on club industry matters.

Online Business Networking and Support

We invite all CMAE members to participate in our private group on Facebook. 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.

CMAE e-newsletter

All CMAE members receive Club Networker, our monthly e-newsletter which is packed

full of information and news about the activities of the CMAE, regions and affiliate partners, industry news, events diary and much more.

Jobs Board
