NATURE OF ACTIVITIES AND MISSION
The ECEF has been formed for charitable and educational purposes to promote intellectual excellence in the field of club management. This purpose will be achieved by awarding bursaries or research grants to individuals and by making gifts or contributions to educational programmes based on CMAE’s Management Development Programme (MDP). CMAE is a non-profit making professional association for members involved in the management of golf, sports, health & fitness, leisure, city and dining clubs located throughout Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa. Together with their Alliance Partners, the CMAE represents over 3,500 club management professionals in over 40 countries.
CMAE’s Board has recognised that, in parallel with development and delivery of its MDP, a top class education programme, there is a need for adequate funding to support both current managers and their successors to enrol in these programmes.The Foundation will provide grants to individuals seeking to expand their practical knowledge of club management. It will also seek to provide additional funding to develop, maintain and expand CMAE’s long term education programme for the professional development of club managers.
