Knowing the direction is the most important part of any journey. With literally hundreds of strategic plans and programs, CMC can offer a custom program to fit your needs, your time constraints and your budget.
Master Planning/Long Range Planning
The conundrum for today’s club is providing for three or more generations of members, all at the same time, all in the same club. CMC works with specific data to help you segregate what’s nice versus what’s necessary to ensure long-term sustainability.
Merger and Acquisition Strategy
The first phase of mergers and acquisitions is the feasibility analysis, then a capability and readiness evaluation, developing a game plan and communicating to gain consensus. Each requires data development collation and stoic objectiveness. CMC provides a custom consulting service in a phased development process.
Developer to Member Transitions
Similar to mergers and acquisitions, but considerably more complicated, the transitional process requires a solid background and knowledge of what can and often does go wrong, before, during and after the transition. CMC has worked with the largest transition of a private club to member owned and has “best practices” from some of the top communities in the country.
CMC has worked with several hundred clubs in developing short term and long range membership programs and initiatives. Recent programs have generated over 250 members at one club in less than 3 months.
CMC will custom design your Board retreat whether on or off site from your Club based upon a pre-retreat teleconference or site visit by CMC. Designed as an educational and collaborative process to bring focus to the Club’s strategic direction.
Often, clubs want to meet and get to understand the company before developing any kind of relationship which could affect the Club's image.
The complexity of today’s multi-generational club requires an alignment of the Club’s offerings to existing and future member needs. Allowing data to drive this often emotionally driven process provides clarity of mission and consensus on the path to sustainability.
Whether getting ready to do a renovation, an assessment or a membership initiative, it is always worthwhile to understand how your members are feeling about specific issues. Focus groups get to the core issues instantly.
20 years ago it was acceptable to do a survey of your entire membership to get an overall composite response. Today’s multi-generational club requires a demographically segregated response so that you can tell what members want and need on the basis of age, family make-up and other variables.
