Welcome to the Club Managers Association of Europe

The Club Managers Association of Europe (CMAE) is a non-profit making professional association with members involved in the management of sports clubs (golf, tennis, sailing and other sports), health & fitness clubs, leisure, city and dining clubs located throughout Europe. 

The CMAE is also a pan-European ‘unifying’ organisation for a variety of national professional associations for club managers and secretaries. National associations can affiliate with the CMAE, thereby giving their membership access to CMAE education programmes, international activities and events.
