European Club Education Fund

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. Together with their Affiliate Partners, the CMAE represents over 6,500 club management professionals in over 27 countries around Europe and the Middle East.

BACKGROUND

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.

HELP US DEVELOP OUR INDUSTRY LEADERS

The Foundation is campaigning to generate funds to become a truly sustainable organization, and we want to hear from you if you have practical ideas for fund-raising activities at your club, by your company or in your organisation.
