Professional Membership provides access to all PCMA member resources to industry professionals actively working onsite within a private club who are responsible for membership retention, relations, sales, marketing and communications. Professional Membership is a pre-requisite for professional certification opportunities and annual conference attendance.
Professional Membership is not available to private club industry professionals working as a consultant or product/service provider. Instead, we invite you to learn more about our Professional Club Resource Program by scrolling down to that option. If you are a ownership or management company professional (affiliated with multiple properties), please contact PCMA directly to learn more about our multi-club membership opportunities.
