Sign Up for Indonesia Club Management Mini Summit

POSTED ON August 16, 2019 @ 6:41 pm

Dr Larry Ross and Steven Thielke will share their vast experience at this month’s Indonesia Club Management Mini Summit.

Jointly organised and presented by the Golf Course Management Association of Indonesia (GCMAI) and the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF), the August 27 gathering will be held at Gading Raya Golf.

Joining Ross, a Professor of Business Administration, and TPC Kuala Lumpur Chief Executive Officer Thielke as a speaker at the Mini Summit will be Hari Agung Sapurta, Vice President of Business Development at Garuda Indonesia, the national carrier.

Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “We’re pleased to confirm the staging of the Indonesia Club Management Mini Summit, the latest in our series of Mini Summits around the region.

“Not only is it an excellent opportunity for club management staff to learn from an outstanding line-up of speakers, but also it’s a chance to network with key decision-makers in the club management industry.”

Anthony Chandra, President of GCMAI, said: “Last year’s event at Pondok Indah attracted more than 50 attendees and we’re expecting another high turnout at Gading Raya Golf.”

Also taking place in the Indonesian capital this month is the latest Business Management Institute (BMI) Asia Pacific education programme.

The five-day event (August 26-30) is presented by the AGIF, the Club Management Association of America (CMAA) and the GCMAI. As the official partner, the certification programme powered by CMAA is executed by the AGIF.

It was in 2015 that the CMAA appointed the AGIF to execute the BMI education programme for the Asia Pacific region in partnership with existing CMAA partners in China, Hong Kong, Macau and New Zealand.

Lynge said: “Such a link was long overdue and has been welcomed not only by established club managers around Asia but also those who harbour ambitions of carving themselves a career in club management.”

The BMI is a professional development programme developed and launched by the CMAA in the early 1980s. Noting managers at all phases of their careers need instruction, education or inspiration, the concept of the ‘lifetime professional development programme’ was born.

The vision was realised as a multi campus-based programme that provides tangible career benchmarks by which managers can track their progress and strive for various levels of competency, including a respected certification.

The curriculum is based on 10 competency areas covering every aspect of a club manager’s job.

In the CMAA 2015 Compensation and Benefits Report, it was reported that the head of club’s compensation with CCM designation was 31% higher than a head of club’s compensation without CCM designation.

The BMI programmes are completely endorsed and empowered by CMAA and is equivalent to what one can receive in the United States.

Further AGIF-organised BMI courses are being planned for later in the year.
