Club + Resort Business, in conjunction with the McMahon Group, Inc., the St. Louis-based consulting firm and the National Club Association (NCA), have announced the 2020 recipients of the Excellence in Club Management (ECM) Awards, established in 1997 by the McMahon Group and co-sponsored since 2005 by C+RB.

The annual awards are selected through nominations submitted on behalf of qualified candidates by other parties. Award recipients are selected solely on the basis of their achievements at the club they currently manage; “lifetime achievements” are not considered.

The Selection Committee for the 2020 Awards was chaired by David Chag, CCM, General Manager of The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. A full listing of judges, in addition to information on past winners and on how to nominate candidates for future years’ awards, can be found at the special website for the ECM Awards, www.clubmanageraward.com.
