Created in 2019, the CMAA Fellows Program is an honorary recognition program distinguishing CMAA members who epitomize the leadership, integrity, involvement, and contributions of club management professionals. Each of these individuals has made a significant impact toward the betterment of the profession and CMAA throughout their active careers.

The Fellows selection process includes nomination by a club management peer; an in-depth submission describing the individual’s innovation, leadership, and commitment to the profession; interviews with the peer-comprised selection committee; and selection from among a group of highly qualified candidates.

In its fourth year, the CMAA Fellows community is now comprised of 28 individuals who serve as thought leaders, subject matter experts, and champions of the Association and the club industry at large.
