The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) is the professional association for managers of membership clubs. CMAA advances the profession of club management by fulfilling the educational and related needs of its members. Membership is dual and simultaneous with the national organization and the local chapter, which is determined by a clubís location. Similar to National, the Carolinas Chapterís mission is to provide timely, engaging and informative education to persons connected with the management of clubs and other associations of similar character; to promote and encourage efficient and successful club management skills; and to advance friendly and mutually beneficial relationships among its members.
Given the geography of the Carolinas, Chapter members manage clubs ranging from the seasonal mountain and beach clubs to the year-round metropolitan country and golf clubs. Similarly, clubs range in size from small seasonal properties to large multi-property facilities and operate under several different ownership structures, from member-owned to developer-owned, and everything in between.
