Welcome to the Canadian Society of Club Managers and thank you for your interest in learning more about our organization!
Our vision is to provide leadership in creating great clubs through excellence in professional club management. This excellence is supported through our progressive and industry leading educational programs which focus on promoting and preparing our members to achieve their Certified Club Manager designation, the hallmark of professionalism in club management. We ensure our education programs are hosted at member clubs whenever possible so, you are not only expanding your mind, you will also get to experience the many wonderful clubs across Canada, discuss innovative ideas with educators and fellow managers and then bring them back to your own club to enhance your members’ own experiences.
Although education is our primary focus, many members would agree that networking with the diverse collection of club managers and senior staff from clubs across the country is equally as important. This vast network of managers is comprised of over 550 CEOs, COOs, General Managers, Assistant GMs, Clubhouse Managers, Controllers, Golf Professionals, Superintendents, Food and Beverage Managers, Executive Chefs, Catering Managers, Building/Facility Managers, Marketing Directors, etc.; employed in private, semi-private or resort type facilities; all of whom are incredibly open to sharing information and ideas. Their facilities include activities such as golf, curling, yacht, social, dining, racket sports, multi-use clubs etc. and are located from coast to coast in Canada and beyond, including members from the USA, China and Australia. We also welcome students and faculty from post-secondary education programs who are interested in working in, or with, the club industry. So as you can see, we truly have a broad range of members from a diverse group of clubs who make up this outstanding organization called the CSCM.
To learn more about the CSCM, just ask any member of our Society or contact our National Office. You will find our staff and members are eager to share information, invite you to a local meeting and get you started on your CSCM journey.
As President, I invite you and the members of your club's management team to engage in the CSCM and join us as we create great clubs through excellence in professional club management.
