On a recent visit to Michigan State University (MSU), Jim Singerling, CCM, CEC, and Chief Executive Officer of the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), was named an honorary faculty member of The School of Hospitality Business.
In his current position for 20 years, and actively involved with CMAA for nearly 30, Singerling has helped to guide the Association by expanding its signature Business Management Institute (BMI) from three annual programs to nearly 40 that are now held not only on university campuses but also at world-class culinary institutes and golf facilities in the U.S. and abroad. For almost 20 years, The School of Hospitality Business has annually hosted three week-long “BMI III” programs for club Chief Operating Officers and General Managers seeking strategically focused professional development and certification through CMAA.
“We already felt like Jim was a part of our school family, but naming him an honorary faculty member solidified and strengthened that relationship,” explains Dr. Ron Cichy, School Director and Professor for MSU’s School of Hospitality Business. “Professor Singerling is an excellent model of leadership in the industry for our students, and CMAA is a treasured strategic relationship partner.”
Singerling will bring his expertise to the MSU campus next fall, when he will serve as the industry expert for Hilton Lecture Series XX, which has club management as its theme.
