How to Join

Quick and Easy - Join CMAA and The Golden State Chapter

To join, complete the CMAA membership application and prepare two checks based on the prevailing CMAA and TGSC dues. Members must maintain standing in both associations. If you have any questions or would like to pay by credit card, please email [email protected].

Please mail the application form and both checks to:

The Golden State Chapter 
1048 Irvine Avenue, Suite 775
Newport Beach, California 92660


To be eligible for membership with the Club Management Association of America (CMAA), a person must be connected with the management of clubs. The application process for managers in California begins at the local chapter level. The application and payment for both The Golden State Chapter (TGSC) and CMAA are sent to TGSC. TGSC works with CMAA on processing the application, and CMAA provides your official acceptance. Membership offers you and your club the education, certification and resources you need to succeed in today's ever-evolving industry.

We look forward to welcoming you!
