About the Society

The Canadian Society of Club Managers is the national professional society for individuals involved in the club management profession in Canada. Since 1957, we have been supporting our members with education, networking and member events to facilitate our members being the best in the industry. Our members are GMs, CEOs, COOs as well as Assistant Managers, Controllers, Food and Beverage Managers and other roles in club management, typically at private or semi-private golf clubs, country clubs, city clubs and recreation & leisure clubs.

Clubs from coast to coast play a huge role in the Canadian economy. Club management involves managing issues such as taxation, governance, labour and corporate law, financial planning, reporting and control, integrated maintenance programs, food and beverage operations, and environmental issues. In December 2021, the membership approved a name change to the Club Management Association of Canada (CMAC). The transition to this new brand is expected by the end of February 2022.

Our Vision: To create great leaders through excellence in professional club management.

Our Mission: To develop, promote and support the profession of club management by providing networking and educational opportunities for our members. We also represent our members’ interests as required by contacting government representatives and voicing our opinions about laws and regulations that will affect members and their clubs.

Code of Ethics: CSCM members are expected to comply with the Society's By-laws and the Code of Ethics. You can read more about CSCM in our President’s Message. In addition, you may find information about the Society’s Complaint and Discipline Process.

Wrongdoing: In 2019 the Board adopted a formal Whistleblower Policy to ensure that all employees understand that they may report any wrongdoing that may adversely impact the Society or its members as well as the public at large, without fear of retaliation or a negative impact on their employment status at the Society. Reports of wrongdoing may be made to the CEO, management and supervisory staff, President, Finance & Audit Committee Chair, or Governance Committee Chair. Further details on submitting a complaint can be found on page 3 of the policy. Anonymous complaints can be directed to Trevor Noonan, CCM, CCE, Governance Committee Chair at Noonan@TorontoClub.ca.
