Club Managers Association of America celebrates San Diego's military

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) in conjunction with their 86th World Conference and Club Business Expo in San Diego, CA, February 8- 11, 2013 will celebrate the military community of San Diego with a networking event on the USS Midway at Navy Pier on Friday, February 8 at 6:30 p.m. This event is presented in partnership with Club Car, a CMAA Gold Alliance Partner.

This annual Conference unites club managers from across the nation for a four-day event packed with education, business and networking opportunities specific to the club management industry. Approximately 2,500 member managers will be in attendance this year.

The event on the USS Midway will directly benefit Tee it up for the Troops, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which was established in 2005 and has raised more than $5 million to provide support for our servicemen and women, our veterans and their families.

Wounded warriors, representatives from all branches of the military, veterans and patients of Balboa Naval Hospital will be joining Tee it up for the Troops and club managers on the USS Midway as they enjoy playing golf on the Full Swing Golf simulator.

Full Swing Golf, located in San Diego, manufactures and markets the leading indoor golf simulator to businesses and consumers worldwide. Full Swing Golf recently installed a golf simulator at the USO Warrior & Family Center at Fort Belvoir, VA, to assist with the rehabilitation and recovery of our American Heroes.

"There is no better way to recognize and applaud those who have served, are serving or who will serve in the armed forces then by having this event and engaging a group of people who have made it their career choice of being hospitable," remarks CMAA Chief Executive Officer Jim Singerling, CCM. "Historically, San Diego has remained a favorable gathering place for our membership, and in order to give back to the community, who in turn has given us so much, there is no better way to serve this widely respected city."
