Starting March 2019, members of the Club Management Association of America (CMAA) may earn Continuing Education Units toward their CMAA certification and Certified Marina Manager designation by attending the Association of Marina Industries (AMI) professional marina managers courses. This provides an exciting new opportunity for yacht club managers, especially those focused on managing the waterfront operations, to access world-class professional training specifically designed for marina and yacht club managers.
CMAA, through their professional development and continuing education programming, offer members the designation of Certified Club Manager (CCM). This designation focuses on ten competency areas.
