January 26 - 31, 2019
Welcome to the Canadian Business Management Institute – Food and Beverage Management Course
We are pleased to open registration for the 2019 BMI Food and Beverage Management to be held in January 2019 at Ryerson University in Toronto. BMI 2019 marks the 9th time the CSCM has presented a BMI course in Canada and the 2nd time it has offered BMI F&B Management in Canada.
We’ve ensured to refresh the course content and tapped into industry experts to create an interesting and informative course for all levels of club professionals. Participants will have the opportunity to create and manage their own restaurant via Ryerson University’s simulation program; taste local organic brews at the Mill St. Brewery, witness the recipe at Soma Chocolatemaker, participate in a teambuilding activity at Cirillo’s Culinary Academy, and dine at one of Toronto’s most exclusive clubs – The York Club. Club visits are always a priority so you will also have the chance to visit The National Club and The Albany Club. Make sure to review the course-at-a-glance or read about the learning objectives , fees and general information (including a promo code for Air Canada). You can also find details on transportation and accommodation. We have already had several participants reserve a place!
BMI courses are an important component of the journey towards the CCM designation and beyond. They also offer the opportunity to get new ideas, share experiences, and build new relationships with your fellow club managers. Although the CCM designation may be your ultimate goal, past participants have commented that it is the journey itself that has offered the greatest value to them.
The CSCM would like to thank the Club Management Association of America (CMAA) for providing the curriculum for the BMI Food and Beverage. Many thanks to the following CSCM members for their time, efforts, and contributions to the planning of this BMI: Marcel Bregstein, CCM, Cyril Duport, Chris Gironda, Bill Morari and Peter Oldfield, CCM.
The CSCM looks forward to an engaging BMI course for January 2019. Register early as our early bird rates are only until December 3, 2018.
