The CMAA Young Professionals (YoPros) group is defined at the national level as “the group of Professional and Alumnus members aged 40 and under. A vibrant community designed to enhance the benefits of CMAA membership by engaging, developing, and empowering the emerging leaders of the Private Club industry through targeted educational, networking and professional development opportunities.”
Here in the Carolinas Chapter we see our YoPros as the emerging leaders of our clubs. We believe we have some of the best young talent in the club industry. Through the support of the Carolinas Chapter Board, Carolinas Club Foundation, and Chapter Sponsors, our YoPros are given opportunities which include education and social networking events tailored just to them.
Through our YoPro group in the Carolinas we have seen growth in the involvement of this segment of managers across our chapter. We have continued to build opportunities to see them connected better in the chapter as well as nationally. We are proud to say the Carolinas Club Foundation offers our YoPros the opportunity at specific scholarships for them, such as our “Future Leaders Scholarship” for local chapter education, and the “YoPro World Conference Scholarship” which assists with the expense of attending World Conference. Here In the Carolinas we recognize our peers as family, and in that spirit we love seeing the growth of our YoPros.
