Norm Spitzig, MCM, a respected leader and speaker in the world of private club management, will answer these questions and more in a lively and stimulating interchange.
Master Club Advisors Senior Partner Norm Spitzig has recently updated and expanded his most popular professional development offering. Based upon his nationally acclaimed and highly successful Board Orientation & Training program, Successful Leadership Models in the Private Club Industry: A Partnership between the Board of Directors and the GeneralManager offers an in-depth look at the "best private club governance practices" currently in use. As part of the program, the "new CMAA leadership model" is presented and examined through the eyes of a veteran industry leader. (Norm was a member of the Task Force that developed and refined CMAA's new leadership paradigm.)
Like its predecessor, this program is most effective either as a CMAA Chapter/Regional presentation for both Club Directors and General Managers or as a seminar for individual Club Boards. Says Spitzig, "Club Directors like this program because it helps them better understand, in a practical and understandable manner from a neutral third party, their specific duties as directors.
Craig and Ron's comments are representative of many other general managers around the country who have also had Norm speak with their individual Boards or to their Chapter members who attend with a Board Member."My ultimate goal in this effort is really quite simple," Norm says.
