Being apart of the CMAA is rewarding on so many levels.

We help to
grow the people who grow your club'


 

The Club Managers' Association Australia is registered as an industrial organisation of employees in the terms of the Fair Work Act, 2009. The CMAA is affiliated with the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU).

The Club Managers' Association Australia, whilst a responsible union, is in the unique position of having its members as both employees, under the Federal Award, and also as employers in their day to day management and administration of Registered Licensed Clubs. Subsequently, the role of the Association extends beyond a purely industrial focus to include the advancement and professional growth of its members and the industry as a whole.

The Association represents professional managers of registered clubs nationally. In this capacity, they are required to be competent in a diverse range of administrative and managerial capacities including the provision of advice to directors and implementation of all aspects of the Registered Clubs Act, Corporations Laws and other relevant legislation. The necessary expertise is gained through the activities of the educational arm of the Association, Club Management Development Australia.
