The City & Country Clubs Council of the International Facility Management Association is pleased to announce its partnership with the Club Managers Association of America, a professional association of nearly 7,000 managers of city, country, golf, yacht and athletic clubs. The partnership strengthens an established relationship between the organizations in which IFMA provides educational resources and certification to CMAA members responsible for overall operational maintenance and the implementation of capital requirements at their clubs.

As part of this partnership, CMAA will recognize all IFMA facility management educational courses that fulfill the related requirements of its own Certified Club Manager credential. Additionally, the organizations plan to confront shared issues facing the club management industry through joint webinars, research collaborations, networking and outreach opportunities, and presentations at each organization’s respective conferences.

“With support from CMAA’s members, there’s no doubt that the City & Country Clubs Council of IFMA can improve the performance of the professionals who oversee each club’s facilities, ultimately enhancing each club member’s experience,” said Steven G. Ballard, project manager at The Country Club in Massachusetts and president of the City & Country Clubs Council of IFMA. “No matter who is responsible for the operation and maintenance of facilities, there’s a great deal to be gained by utilizing the proper information in order to make the best decision on behalf of the club and its membership.”
