You’ve Got to GO!
There are plenty of reasons why
attending World Conference is a must
for club management professionals –
whether it’s the top-notch education,
the access to thousands of your peers’
ideas and best practices, the fabulous
events or the non-stop networking,
a week at World Conference isn’t one
to be missed. This year is no different,
with more than 70 sessions, 40
percent new speakers and 4 featured
speakers, you’ve got to GO!
Dear CMAA Friends:
The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) is excited to present our 89th
World Conference on Club Management and Club Business Expo in San Diego,
CA. I can’t think of a better setting for this annual gathering of club management
professionals. While our annual Conference has a long history, you will find the
2016 event enhanced with a variety of new opportunities and offerings, designed
specifically for your individual and professional growth. This year we are launching
more educational options with four featured general education speakers, unique
alternative formats for learning and more one hour options, based on your feedback.
Doug Smith will kick off the general education at our Opening Business Session on
Monday, February 22, with “The Skill of Happiness.” Doug, a former CEO of Kraft Foods
Canada, Borden Foods Corporation and Best Brands Corporation, is relishing the second
half of his life as a teacher, writer and adviser and he benefits from the experiences of
others and learns from his own foibles. His specific areas of interest are leadership and
organizational effectiveness, happiness and well-being, and the skill of dealing with
setbacks in life.
On Tuesday, February 23, the top-ranked adaptive snowboarder in the US, a three-time
World Cup Para-Snowboard winner, the 2014 Paralympic bronze medalist and the
author of New York Times best-seller On My Own Two Feet, Amy Purdy will open the
day. Hear about how Amy triumphed over a two percent chance of surviving spinal
meningitis at the age of 19 to winning a Bronze Medal in the first-ever Paralympic
Snowboard Cross Competition in 2014. The obstacles you may face in your clubs may
be different from her journey, but the underlying truths are the same.
On Wednesday, February 24, Jason Dorsey, Chief Strategy Officer at The Center for
Generational Kinetics, noted generations expert and author of Y-Size Your Business,
will set the stage for multiple sessions focusing on millennials and how to manage
employees across the generational divide. Our employees are a significant resource for
our clubs, and this education is designed to address this management challenge.
Our Closing Business Session on Thursday, February 25, will spotlight Josh Linkner,
a four-time tech entrepreneur, hyper-growth CEO, NY Times bestselling author and
venture capitalist. He began his career as a jazz guitarist and personifies creativity,
entrepreneurship and disruptive innovation. He is on a mission to drive creativity,
innovation and reinvention – all skills necessary for sustainable success in our field.
These four speakers are just a sampling of what will be available to you in San Diego.
With more than 70 sessions, you will find answers for your tough questions and
connect with your greatest allies, your colleagues in the club industry.
Thanks, as always, for your awesome support and I look forward to seeing you in
San Diego, CA.

The Bicycle Chautauqua “Does”
San Diego—Riding, Reflecting and
Pursuing the CCM Mission
Gregg Patterson, The Beach Club
In this fast-paced day and age, club managers are
hard-pressed to find time for substantive, casual
conversation with fellow club managers. These stressed
out professionals need the Chautauqua Experience.
During the three days of bicycling, there will be
three, two-hour debriefs focusing on issues raised
during the day’s ride. Each debrief will be followed
by hours of discussion during breaks, maintenance
periods and dinner.
Bicycles can be rented at a pre-approved bicycle shop
near the Chautauqua hotel if rentals are needed. All
dinners and accommodations will be paid for separately by each rider. The seminars and debriefs will be
free. The ride is limited to 30 managers. All riders must
be registered through CMAA.
Sunday, February 21, 2016
Private Club Executive Leadership at a
Higher Level
Moderators: Dick Kopplin and Kurt Kuebler,
CCM, Kopplin & Kuebler, LLC
This program will look at best practices not only in the
club business but also in other business disciplines,
and most importantly how managers and board
members need to work collaboratively in the best
interests of their clubs. During this interactive session,
all participants will be encouraged to share their
thoughts, ideas and questions; we’ll address many of
those issues, as well as identifying key success strategies to take back to your club for implementation.
What have the most successful leaders done in
their respective business environments to insure
their company’s success in a challenging economic
environment? And what are the observable leadership
characteristics in these executives that have application in the private club industry?
This all-day session will include presentations by Kurt
Kuebler, CCM, and Dick Kopplin, other guest speakers
and round-table problem solving exercises. Please
note, it is highly recommended that attendees bring
their club president or another director to this workshop.
Strategic Planning That Matters…
Interactive and Hands-On Case Studies
Henry DeLozier and Steve Johnston, Global
Golf Advisors (GGA)
This valuable workshop will utilize real-life problem-solving tools, data resources and collaborative
discernment to analyze actual club case studies and
develop actionable and scalable solutions for strategic
planning. This workshop will put club managers in
the shoes of a GGA advisor through realistic case
studies using the core competencies that are required
for proper strategic planning. The curriculum of case
studies will require participants to rise to a strategic
level of thinking; apart from their customary tactical
viewpoint. It will require participants to work in a
collaborative environment to review and evaluate
market conditions, facility and financial limitations,

organization of management and governance practices for three specific clubs. Key takeaways should
include an updated understanding of market research
and communication methods, organization of highlevel financial data and current best management
practices in strategic planning.
The three case studies will be:
1. A large private club with multiple courses, limited
non-golf amenities, expansive demand for dining
and socialization within an over-supplied metropolitan market area.
2. A medium-sized, highly seasonal private club within
a gated mandatory-membership community with
18-hole golf course, limited non-golf recreation
and inefficient clubhouse plan that limits food and
beverage growth because of poor structural design.
3. A small historic golf club (golf only) with an
aging golf course, limited food and beverage and
declining membership located within a major
metropolitan market area.
All Things Wine and Beyond
Steve Poe, Master
Sommelier; Randall Bertao,
CCM, Master Sommelier;
Danielle Gillespie, C.E.O. and
Founder Cork Guru
This year we are pleased to
welcome two Master Sommeliers
–and fellow club managers – in
Steve Poe of Big Canyon Country
Club and Randall Bertao, CCM, of
Los Altos Golf and Country Club,
as co-hosts of this year’s food and
wine education.
The session will feature a variety
of topics, including:
■■
the latest technology advances in maintaining
wine lists,
■■
how to build a diversified wine by the glass program,
■■
conducting a wine dinner,
■■
effective use of a wine committee, and
■■
an in depth wine tasting from the perspective of a
Master Sommelier.
8
Lunch with a three-course wine tasting, along with an
in-depth presentation from the Santa Barbara Vintners,
will be served at the Marriott.
Our two co-hosts each achieved the highest recognition from the Court of Master Sommeliers through a
lifelong dedication and commitment to the trade. Randall achieved his Master Sommelier (MS) certification in
2005, and not too long after reaching his certification,
accepted the General Manager position at Los Altos
Golf and Country Club. In his current capacity, Randall
manages the beverage program and participates in all
levels of the Court of Master Sommelier examinations
as well as educational seminars.
Steve Poe obtained his MS certification in 2008 and
soon after began the task of building one of the best
club wine programs and wine cellars in the country,
while undergoing the development of a new clubhouse at Big Canyon Country Club in 2009. Steve Poe
has successfully elevated the beverage program and
wine list, while continuing to mentor many aspiring
Sommeliers. Currently, the beverage program at Big
Canyon Country Club generates more than $1M in
wine sales accounting for 16 percent of every dollar in
food and beverage sales.
Navigating Organizational Change
Moderator: Kevin Carroll, CCM, CCE
Change is never easy. When it comes to a leadership
change in a club, there are challenges for everyone
involved. Join CMAA Chief Executive Officer, Jeff
Morgan as well as current club general managers and
chief operating officers as they take you through their
stories of enacting, reacting to and creating powerful
organizational change. Kevin Carroll, CCM, CCE, from
the Atlanta Athletic Club will serve as the moderator
for the workshop. Learn how to quickly assess your
organization, how to engage your new teammates
and members as well as how to stay balanced and
motivated in tough times. Also hear how to follow a
strong leader, how to build team chemistry, how to
build processes and accountability. In short, how to
build all-star team. Whether you are starting or restarting your tenure at your club, this workshop will help
you prepare for and successfully deal with leadership
changes throughout your career.

Featured Conference Speakers
Douglas A. Smith
Amy Purdy
Doug, a former business leader, is
relishing the second half of his life
as a teacher, writer and adviser
and he benefits from the experiences of others and learns from
his own foibles. In his previous life
he served as CEO of Kraft Foods
Canada, Chairman/CEO of Borden
Foods Corporation and Chairman/CEO of Best Brands
Corporation.
His specific areas of interest are leadership and organizational effectiveness, happiness and well-being, and
the skill of dealing with setbacks in life. He works with
organizations and individuals, focusing on emerging
companies and with CEOs who are eager to learn and
enhance their leadership skills and live with greater joy
and abundance.
Doug’s interest in positive psychology led him to
author a book entitled Happiness: The Art of Living
with Peace, Confidence and Joy. He teaches an
undergraduate course at DePauw University and leads
sessions at Canyon Ranch on “The Science and Skill
of Happiness.” Doug speaks on both leadership and
happiness at conferences and organizations across the
country and consults with numerous CEOs. He does
not charge for his services, but requires a meaningful
contribution to cancer research in return for his work.
Likewise, the profits from his book are donated to
cancer research. To date, his work and writing has
raised more than $1.5 million for this cause.
Doug has a BA and an honorary doctorate from
DePauw University and an MBA from Dartmouth
College. He and his wife Phyllis have two grown sons
and live happily in Columbus, OH.
Be sure to catch Doug’s presentation at the Opening
Business Session on Monday, February 22, at 3:30 p.m.
Amy Purdy lost her legs to bacterial meningitis when she was only
19. Originally given less than a 2
percent chance of survival, she
beat her odds, battled depression
and rose to accept her new reality
– but not any limitations. Today,
she is the top-ranked adaptive
snowboarder in the US, a three-time World Cup
Para-Snowboard winner, the 2014 Paralympic bronze
medalist and the author of New York Times best-seller
On My Own Two Feet. Amy has evolved into a powerful
inspirational and motivational speaker who has shared
her story with millions of people around the world. She
has been a featured presenter at both TEDx and POP
Tech. Her TED talk is distributed to new, incoming TED
speakers as the number one recommended sample
presentation. It has been viewed millions of times and
translated into multiple languages. Through poignant
and powerful stories, she shows audiences how to use
our challenges to push past our limits and live a life
without barriers.
Top-Ranked Snowboarder. After going through
her life-altering experience, Amy challenged herself
to attain goals that even those with both legs would
struggle to achieve. After being unable to find prosthetics that would allow her to snowboard, she built
her own and began snowboarding just seven months
later. Three months after a kidney transplant, she
entered the USASA National Snowboarding Championship where she won medals in three events. She is
the only double-leg amputee competing at the elite
world-class level, and she is considered one of the most
commercially successful Paralympic/adaptive athletes
in the world, having partnered with major brands like
Toyota, Pfizer, Coca-Cola, the Hartford, P&G, Duracell,
Kelloggs and Element.
Losing Her Legs and Living Life With No Borders.
After experiencing flu-like symptoms, Amy was
rushed to the hospital in a state of septic shock. She
www.cmaa.org/conf 9
experienced respiratory and multiple organ failure
which caused her to lose circulation to her extremities. She was put on life support and placed into
a coma. She needed multiple blood transfusions,
lost both kidneys, and had to remove her ruptured
spleen. Doctors had to amputate her legs below
the knee, and she later received a donated kidney
from her father. In 2005, Purdy co-founded Adaptive
Action Sports, a non-profit dedicated to introducing
people with physical challenges to action sports.
AAS was instrumental in getting adaptive snowboarding added to the 2014 Paralympic Games.
Dancer, Model, Actress and Designer Extraordinaire. Amy’s creativity, positive outlook, and nevergive-up attitude have opened countless doors. She
competed on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars and was
the show’s first double amputee contestant. She
finished second and joined the short list of contestants to never receive any score lower than an
8. She and husband Daniel Gale also raced around
the world on CBS’s The Amazing Race, and she was
featured in a national Super Bowl ad for Toyota in
2015. Amy shared her remarkable story alongside
Oprah Winfrey, as part of Oprah’s The Life You Want
Tour, and she has been featured in a Madonna music video, creative projects for musician Nikki Sixx,
10
and countless magazines including the 2014 ESPN
Body Issue and People magazine. She was also a lead
actress in the award-winning independent film,
“What’s Bugging Seth,” and named one of ESPNW’s
“Impact 25” in 2014. Next up on her list is a clothing
and cosmetics line.

Competency Area: Accounting &

Imagine a club where everyone

fully understood the income

Investing in the financial intelligence of your employees will help significantly and sustainably improve
business results. This highly practical workshop has
proved to be tremendously valuable to senior management, sales and operational staff at all levels. In fact,
if you think about it, every employee has an effect on
business results!

business, and how their daily activities impact the

to improve results. Leading companies know that
business financial intelligence helps build a positive
culture of a business within a business. Communicate

there’s no stopping them.

Competency Area: Membership & Marketing
Your members are online, on social media every day. If
your club is not present, you are missing opportunities
to connect and engage with your members. You
are also missing opportunities to drive revenue and
achieve financial targets. Attendees will understand
why it is essential for private clubs to communicate
with members online, what content is engaging, yet
maintains exclusivity, and who in the club should
be responsible for managing the content plan. We’ll
reference current examples, develop sample content
in small groups and establish the framework for social
media strategy, which can be immediately implemented in your club.

Naked Statistics Meets Big Data: Stripping
the Dread From the Data
Charles Wheelan, Ph.D.,
Rockefeller Center,
Dartmouth College
Competency Areas: Accounting
& Professional Resources,
Leadership
“Data are to statistics what a good
offensive line is to a star quarterback.” Everyone’s talking about big data. But what
we should focus on, instead, is statistics. Data is like a
resource—a raw fuel that is abundant, but formless.
It’s just there. Statistics are what allow us to turn data
18
into intelligence, into pragmatic action in government,
the corporate world, science, innovation, education.
Without this interpretive filter, we are left asking bad
questions, which leads to bigger bad answers. In this
talk, Charles Wheelan turns data on its head, makes
it comprehensible, and—with humor and real world
examples—shows you how to turn this suddenly “sexy”
concept into something actually, and endlessly, useful.
His case studies are relatable and resonant: How does
Netflix know which movies you’ll like? Why is autism on
the rise? How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized testing? How can we become more effective
marketers? These are just a handful of examples. He
also customizes for various industries, pulling out the
newest and most illuminating intelligence. In the end,
you’ll come to see how you can exploit the valuable
data all around you to solve your thorniest problems.

Conference Information
All advance communications including confirmations
and reminders will be distributed via e-mail. Make sure
[email protected] is on your e-mail
safe senders list. If you have not been receiving current
announcements from CMAA or if you have opted out
of any e-mails in the past, please visit the Get Mail page
at www.cmaa.org/getmail.aspx to make sure CMAA
has your current information.

Maximizing Your Credits
Want to make sure you earn as many CMI credits
as possible at Conference? Use these tips:
■■
Attend all sessions. By attending all scheduled
sessions of education, you can earn up to 22.5 Club
Management Institute (CMI) Education Credits.
■■
Extend your trip and add a Pre-Conference
Workshop and earn six CMI credits.
■■
Proceedings Manual and
On-Site Guide
Session materials for the more than 70 education
sessions will be available via the new mobile app
designed specifically for World Conference. In addition
to speaker materials, you’ll be able to access speaker
information; browse maps of San Diego as well as the
hotel and convention center; message other Conference attendees; share your Conference experience on
social media; and browse the list of exhibitors at the
2016 Club Business Expo.
Most importantly, the Conference app will replace
the Education Cards filled out after every Education
session. In order to earn credit for attending, you must
download the application and complete the electronic,
in-app survey accompanying the corresponding
session. Don’t worry – more information about this
process will be available as Conference gets closer, so
be on the lookout for learning opportunities in the
coming months. We are looking forward to bringing
CMAA into the future and making the transition as
seamless as possible.
Instructions for downloading and using the application will be available online at www.cmaa.org/conf in
January.
