The McMahon Report December 2023

The McMahon Report® 11 Nominations Are Open for the 2024 Excellence in Club Management® Awards! The ECM Awards honor managers who are nominated by their Board Presidents to recognize their achievements at their current clubs. A Selection Committee comprised of a peer group of leading club managers conducts the judging. There are four award categories for General Managers, based on club size and type, including an award for a Canadian manager. There is also an additional “Rising Star” award for assistant managers, and in some years a Lifetime Achievement Award is also presented to a retired manager. More information on the ECM Awards and on how to nominate candidates for the 2024 Awards can be found at The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2024.
