Dalian, China: The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) has confirmed that 11 club management professionals have attained the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM).
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 in 1965. Since then it has been the hallmark of professionalism in club management globally. It is a valuable, internationally recognised 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 World Conference on Club Management and maintain activity within their local chapter. 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.
Since 2007, CMAA’s education programme BMI China was launched in partnership with Sun Yat Sen University Tourism School and has produced a total of 22 CCMs.
A further 11 club managers have now been added to that list having successfully met all CCM requirements – Jimmy Luk Kim-wah (The Canton Club & Canton International House, Guangdong); Susan Shao Ying-ying (Foshan Fox Valley Golf Club, Guangdong); Li Wei (Caesars Golf, Macau); Wu Lichun (Agile Golf & Country Club, Guangdong); Sophie He Kunpeng (Guangzhou Nansha Golf Club, Guangdong); Monica Ma Xiaojuan (Mayland International Country Club, Guangdong); Ingrid Hua Ying (Suzhou Tuspark, Jiangsu); Chris So Siu-kwan (Teamfirst Management Ltd, Hong Kong); Tina Zhang Yuqi (Nanning Guomin County Bank, Guangxi); Rain He Huiying (Foshan Golf Club, Guangdong) and Elena Zheng Chuandi (Sanya Luhuitou Golf Club, Hainan).
The BMI China is an overseas BMI programme, authorised by the CMAA. Established in China in 2007, it provides an opportunity for managers in China to enhance their professional performance.
The BMI programme is designed with similar structure and contents to CMAA-BMI courses in America. The lecturers are sent and approved by the CMAA and Dr Aylwin Tai, CCM.
