Throughout the year, The Club Foundation supports CMAA’s Chapters with funds from the Excellence in Education Awards, Chapter of the Year Awards, New Member Recruitment and Chapter Workshop Grants.

Chapter Workshop Grant Program

The Club Foundation is pleased to offer the Chapter Workshop Grant Program to CMAA Chapters. Each year, during the Managers Awards Luncheon at Annual Conference, The Club Foundation randomly draws three chapter names, one from each size category of Small, Medium and Large. All chapter names are automatically entered into the drawing and the winning chapters receive an education workshop completely free of charge.

The speakers participating in the program have agreed to an all-inclusive package, to be paid by The Club Foundation. This will encompass speaker fees, travel expenses or other workshop-related expenses. By participating in the program, the speaker has agreed not to charge the Chapter any additional fees for doing the workshop.

Past Recipents

“As a two-time Joe Perdue scholarship recipient and 2018 Kendall scholarship recipient, I fully appreciate the value of these programs funded by The Club Foundation. My career aspirations formed at a young age and without the financial support of The Club Foundation, I would not be where I am today. From the financial assistance I received, I was able to put myself through college, attend distant conferences, achieve my CCM designation, and help fund my dream. As a result, I've recently become a general manager of a private club. I am incredibly grateful for the generous support of the Club Foundation and encourage everyone to give back to those future leaders most in need. I am living proof that your donation makes a difference and I’m forever grateful for the invaluable opportunities I have received through The Club Foundation.”
