Welcome to the Canadian Society of Club Managers and thank you for your interest in learning more about our association!
Our vision is to provide leadership in creating great clubs by supporting leaders through excellence in professional club management. This excellence is created via CSCM’s progressive and industry-leading educational programs which focus on promoting and preparing our members to achieve their Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation. As the CCM is the hallmark of professionalism in club management, we are creating opportunities every day (including new virtual options), and will continue to ensure many of our in-person education programs are hosted at member clubs whenever possible. You will expand your mind; experience the many wonderful clubs across Canada; discuss innovative ideas with educators and fellow club professionals; allowing you to bring great information 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 & 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.
Club facilities include activities such as golf, curling, yacht, social, dining, racket sports, multi-use clubs etc., many of which also host overnight guests, and are located from coast-to-coast in Canada and elsewhere. We also welcome students and faculty from post-secondary institutions who are interested in working in, or with, the club industry. So as you can see, we truly have a broad range of members who make up this outstanding organization called the CSCM.
The CSCM is an active member of the National Allied Golf Association (NAGA), partnering with five other national associations in the amateur and professional golf industry in Canada. Maintaining industry relationships and advocating for our members with various levels of government are two of the many benefits we provide to our members.
To learn more about the CSCM just ask any member or contact our National Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-979-0640. 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 leaders through excellence in professional club management.
Welcome to the CSCM!
