The CMAE is delighted to announce that R&A Chief Executive Martin Slumbers will open the 2020 European Conference on Club Management.

Slumbers, who has been Chief Executive of The R&A for 5 years, will present the opening session of the Conference on day 1, along with CMAE President James Burns CCM and CMAA President Mark Bado and will talk about the destination and future of The R&A and the golf industry.

The virtual event will place over three days from the 30th November to the 2nd December 2020 with three days of educational seminars, networking and workshops.

“It’s a great honour for us to welcome Martin and we look forward to him sharing his insights with delegates,” said CMAE’s Director of Education Torbjorn Johansson. “It’s just one more reason for CMAE members to sign up to this year’s conference.”

Other keynote speakers at the conference include GGA Partners Rob Hill where he will suggest metrics for measuring leadership success in 2020 and beyond, Arnaldo Cocuzza CCM will talk about his fascinating story from being a successful club manager in Italy and President of CMAE, to then losing his job and starting his new life in the USA where he now finds himself at the exclusive Desert Mountain Club in Arizona, plus Andre Van Hall, who uses his own experiences of going blind, losing his job and getting cancer to inspire people to influence change and not be afraid of it.


Registration for the conference will close on Wednesday 25th November.
