ASSOCIATION FOR MEMBERSHIP AND MARKETING PROFESSIONALS AT PRIVATE CLUBS

New England Chapter of PCMA


History/Overview of Chapter

Professional Club Marketing Association (PCMA) is the national association for directors of membership at private clubs. The New England Chapter brings together membership and marketing directors, as well as other club managers from the region. Our mission is to offer the opportunity to network, learn and communicate effectively with other like minded professionals.

Originally founded in 2007 by Jay Adrian, Director of Membership and Sales for The Union Club of Boston, the New England Chapter of PCMA is growing! The New England Chapter brings together membership and marketing directors, as well as other club managers from the region.  Our mission is to offer the opportunity to network, learn and communicate effectively with other like minded professionals.

In order to achieve these goals, the New England Chapter will use its resources wisely to maintain a flexible structure that promotes the diverse interests and broad participation of its members.

We welcome all club professionals to participate in our quarterly meetings, where we can share best practices, as well as communicate and network successfully to increase awareness of PCMA.  The importance of a membership/marketing professional is paramount to the success of any club, and we are focused on growing this key position at private clubs in New England.

Our Chapter is very unique as we have one chapter to cover six states!  There are 11 city clubs alone in Boston, as well as many golf/country clubs in Massachusetts and the surrounding New England states. This can be a challenge when we try to host our quarterly meetings at different clubs, but it certainly gives us an opportunity to visit other clubs and meet with peers in the industry. 

We look forward to continued growth in our chapter!

Chapter Highlights

April 2017 - Congratulations to PCMA New England Chapter Secretary Laura Holmstedt on her completion of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 17th. After losing both her aunt to colon cancer and dear friend to breast cancer last Spring, Laura was determined to run in their honor. Laura was granted a slot on the Dana Farber Cancer Institute team and raised $11, 295 towards cancer research. Her goal for her first marathon was to finish in 4 hours and she crossed the finish line on Boylston street in 3 hours, 59 minutes, and 17 seconds! The New England Chapter continues to be Boston Strong and one step closer to curing cancer!
