Welcome to CMAI - Club Management Association of Ireland
The Club Management Association of Ireland(CMAI) represents professional club managers in the Golf, Tennis, Yachting, Leisure and Dining Club sectors across the island of Ireland since 1968.
The Irish Association of Golf Club Secretaries (IAGCS) was first established in 1968 and the Club Managers association of Europe (CMAE) Irish Region in 2003. Then, in 2010, these two associations merged to become the Irish Golf and Club Managers Association.The merger was welcomed by all professional managers and the IGCMA became the single voice for the Club management profession in Ireland. Following a lenghty strategic evaluation, in 2022, it was agreed at the AGM in March 2023, to rename the Association and become the Club Management Association of Ireland .
