Each year the CMAA Country Managers Conference builds in status as the primary opportunity for regional managers to discuss issues unique to country clubs. The conference is moving to central NSW in 2020, hosted by the Parkes Services Club from 13-15 May.
In contrast to many industry events, where experts deliver information to the delegates in a traditional manner, the Country Managers’ Conference takes a more personal and active approach for many sessions.
Questions from the floor during discussions and panel style sessions enable the managers to share knowledge and experience with industry experts in a more interactive way and is one of the main reasons for the growing popularity of this event.
Assumptions are challenged, experiences traded, problems solved, and the start to finish processes of success stories are reported.
Each year the delegates are given the opportunity to focus on these specific key areas by simultaneously networking and creating solutions with fellow conference peers
This year issues include discussions that include the role of the General Manager and Boards and handling dysfunction in the board room, using business intelligence tools to understand trends and develop usable and practical insights from your data, HR issues and innovative ideas to rejuvenate your club.
Day 2 includes the Country Gaming Workshop where discussions that are unique to Country Clubs are worked through to explore the challenge of maintaining gaming results in towns with lots of competition and a static population.
By swapping information and sharing solutions, fresh insights and strategies are developed that ensure country clubs continue to be sustainable and of to service their communities.
