Beyond the CCM - Additional Designations

Once members have achieved the Certified Club Manager designation, they may work towards additional designations recognizing their ongoing commitment to the profession and continuous lifelong learning:

  • Honour Society
  • Certified Chief Executive (CCE)
  • Master Club Manager (MCM)

At this point in CSCM's Certification history, the first two levels have been implemented and awarded (see below for information on requirements).  However, since there are no current MCM's within the Society, those wishing to pursue this designation must do so through the Club Managers Association of America.  Jeff Scott, CCM, CCE is currently working towards his MCM designation.

Honour Society

Membership in the CSCM Honour Society is open to those club managers who meet the following criteria:

  • achievement of 400 additional credits beyond certification with a minimum of 150 national/branch education programs;
  • Active membership status in CSCM for a minimum of nine years; and
  • successful completion of BMI IV or BMI V.

Members are not required to petition for Honour Society status.  Once National Office staff have verified that the member has met all the requirements above, he/she will be recognized as an Honour Society member.

 Certified Chief Executive (CCE)

The CCE was developed to recognize those managers who have shown the ability to successfully serve as the most senior manager in a club.  The CCM designation remains as the "hallmark of professionalism" within the club industry.  The  CCE is intended to augment the CCM, not replace it.

In order to quality for the CCE, members must:

  • hold Active or Retired membership status within CSCM;
  • have been a CSCM member for a minimum of 10 years;
  • have achieved the CCM designation and Honour Society status;
  • have successfully completed both BMI IV and BMI V;
  • have served as the top executive in a club (ie. GM, COO, CEO) for a minimum of 5 years (can be from multiple clubs);
  • submit the Petition Form below to CSCM along with a current resume documenting their previous positions;
  • submit a notarized Verification Form from their current club president verifying that they have served as the top executive for at least five years (if they have not been at their current club as the chief executive for five years, a notarized form is required from their previous club(s) to verify the five year period); and
  • a $75 (CDN) administrative fee to be included with the Petition.

Master Club Manager

The MCM designation is a certification and recognition program for a special group of professionals who have made extraordinary and long-lasting contributions to the club industry.  It is awarded to those individuals who have met the following criteria:

  • attained the CCM designation and Honour Society membership;
  • achieved 200 additional credits beyond Honour Society with a minimum of 100 credits from national/branch education programs;
  • have maintained Active membership status for a minimum of 12 years;
  • have successfully completed BMI IV and BMI V;
  • have successfully completed the MCM Profile and Monograph; and
  • have completed an education presentation at the CMAA World Conference based on their monograph.

Additional information about the process is available on the CMAA web site.
