The Canadian Society of Club Managers has announced that four Canadian club management professionals have recently attained the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM) and join the 64 other CCMs in Canada.
The CCM designation indicates that a club management professional has completed a course of study and training and shows a dedication to proficiency and expertise in club management.
The CCM designation is the hallmark of professionalism in club management, established by the Club Management Association of America in 1965.
The CSCM launched the certification program in Canada in 2004. The designation is a valuable, internationally-recognized, and widely-respected mark of a manager’s commitment to professional development and the club industry.
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 branches.
After these conditions have been met, the individual must pass the CCM exam. The following individuals achieved all CCM requirements in November:
Rob Cheevers, CCM, General Manager,
Buffalo Canoe Club, Ridgeway, Ont.
Molly Jagroop, CCM, Controller,
Oakdale Golf & Country Club, Toronto
Steven Pert, CCM, General Manager
Kanawaki Golf Club, Kahnawake, Que.
Martin Piché, CCM, General Manager/Chief Operating Officer
Cedar Brae Golf Club, Toronto.
Newly certified professionals will be recognized at the 2020 CSCM National Conference being held October 3-6 in Saskatoon.
