Greater San Diego Chapter of PCMA

The Greater San Diego Chapter of the PCMA was founded by Rachel Carter, Director of Membership for La Jolla Country Club in 2007. Rachel served as President of the Chapter from 2007-2008. Ralph McMillan, Membership Director, Bernardo Heights Country Club from 2009-2010 and Sandy Cooper, Membership Director, Fairbanks Ranch Country Club from 2011-2013.

The Chapter was founded to provide a unique opportunity for all San Diego region private club membership directors, club marketing professionals and club managers to network, learn and communicate effectively with other area club professionals.

Quarterly meetings are held at San Diego region PCMA clubs. We offer networking, open discussion forums and guest speakers twice per year. Speaker presentations focus on membership recruitment, retention and relations. Hot topics related to club communications and professional developments are also covered.

PCMA members and Non-Members are invited and encouraged to attend Greater San Diego Chapter PCMA meetings. 

About the Region
San Diego is TopGun USA, the birthplace of naval aviation. The largest sector of San Diego’s economy is military and defense, boasting the largest naval fleet in the world. The military and the weather rule San Diego.

The weather in San Diego is perfect. With an average temperature of 70 degrees and 267 mostly sunny days per year, it’s no wonder there’s so much going on in San Diego and not just along the 70 miles of coastline from Oceanside to Imperial Beach.

The World Famous San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Sea World and LegoLand are popular San Diego tourist attractions. Annual events include Comic-Con, Street Scene Music Festival, San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Marathon and the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

Spend a day equestrian riding or watching the thoroughbred’s race in Del Mar. Play a round of golf at an exclusive club in Rancho Santa Fe or challenge your friends to a tennis match in La Jolla. Go to the theatre Downtown or relax with a cold local craft beer…San Diego has it all!
