Alexandria, VA – On July 10, 2017, the Board of Directors for the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) officially granted the charter for East Carolina University as the Association’s newest student chapter.
To earn a chapter charter, eligible student colonies must have at least ten student members over the course of two years and demonstrate membership growth, show support from their respective senior chapter of CMAA, support from the faculty or a university official, share the colony’s bylaws, and provide the university’s course catalog, highlighting the school’s club class.
CMAA’s National Board, its Chapter Relations Committee and the staff team at CMAA National Headquarters is proud to welcome the East Carolina University Student Chapter to the Club Managers Association of America. The persistence and hard work of the students and the support from the faculty advisor, Ms. Cynthia Deale, Ph.D., the University, and the Carolinas Chapter was well documented and the CMAA Board’s decision was unanimous.
CMAA will host its 92nd World Conference on Club Management in San Francisco, CA, March 2-6, 2018. At our Student Awards Breakfast, the East Carolina University student chapter will be presented with its official charter and be recognized as our newest student chapter.
