The Canadian Society of Club Managers (CSCM) has announced that Brice MacDermott, general manager of the Windermere Golf and Country Club in Edmonton, has recently attained his designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM) and joins the 79 other CCMs and one MCM in Canada.
The CCM designation indicates that a club management professional has completed a rigorous course of study and training and shows a dedication to proficiency and expertise in club management.
The CCM designation was established by the Club Management Association of America in 1965. The CSCM launched the certification program in Canada in 2004.
In order to receive the CCM designation, one must invest time in specified education requirements, attend at least one CSCM national conference, be a member of the CSCM for a minimum of six years and maintain activity within their local branch.
After these conditions have been met, the individual must pass the CCM exam. Attainment of the CCM title shows a long-term commitment to professional development and club management.
Newly certified professionals will be recognized at the 2021 CSCM national conference, Oct. 2-6 in Montreal.
