About the Society

Established in 1957, the Canadian Society of Club Managers is the national professional society for those individuals involved in the club management profession in Canada. While the majority of Society members are the general managers/chief executive officers/chief operating officers and senior staff of a variety of clubs, it also includes Assistant Managers, Controllers, Food and Beverage Managers, among others who are interested in and pursuing a career in club management.

Of our approximately 560 members, approximately 60% are from golf clubs and/or country clubs, 10% from city clubs, 7% from recreation and leisure clubs, and the remainder from a variety of sports, fitness, curling and other types of clubs. The majority of these clubs are private or semi-private and represent over 240 clubs across Canada.

Over the next five to ten years, the Society will be striving to achieve its vision of "creating great clubs through excellence in professional club management." The Society's mission, "to promote and develop the profession of club management" is achieved through a variety of programs and services in response to member needs and expectations that include the certification program leading to the "Certified Club Manager" (CCM) designation, providing information and education to members, including career opportunities, and providing a forum for networking between managers and those involved in club management.
