The Club Management Association of Canada is the national professional organization for individuals involved in the club management profession in Canada. Since 1957, we have been supporting our members with education, networking and member events to facilitate our members being the best in the industry. Our members are GMs and CEOs as well as Assistant Managers, Controllers, Food and Beverage Managers and other roles in club management, typically at private or semi-private golf clubs, country clubs, city clubs and recreation & leisure clubs.
Clubs from coast to coast play a huge role in the Canadian economy. Club management involves managing issues such as taxation, governance, labour and corporate law, financial planning, reporting and control, integrated maintenance programs, food and beverage operations, and environmental issues.
Professional Development opportunities include education sessions in conjunction with Branch meetings, workshops, roundtables, and the Supervisor Series. A variety of social events such as the fall Social Networking Event, annual golf tournament, annual Presidents Managers Dinner in November and Annual General Meeting all contribute to a strong network of club managers in Ontario for sharing information, ideas and strategies for dealing with the ongoing issues and challenges faced daily.
The Branch is an active participant within the National Allied Golf Associations (NAGA) Ontario, an alliance of the golf related associations dedicated to growing the game of golf and raising the awareness of the contribution the golf industry makes to the Canadian economy, the environment, and health and fitness.
The Ontario Branch is led by a dedicated and diverse Board consisting of not only General Managers but a mix of other senior managers from a variety of types of clubs.
