To all of the above questions, the answer is a resounding YES! • Is McMahon an architecture firm? No, but our founder and chairman is an architect in 44 states and Canada as well, and we have other architects working for the firm. Our specialty is developing major facility projects that create feasible solutions, affordable costs and funding plans that members approve. After we get projects approved, our clubs hire local architects and contractors to build our projects. To date McMahon has developed over $3.5 billion in approved projects. • Do you do GM searches? No, we do not, but we highly recommend our friends in the Club Leadership Alliance (CLA), Kopplin, Kuebler &Wallace, for executive placement in the club industry. • Do you do capital reserve studies? No, but we recommend the services of our CLA partners at Club Benchmarking. This edition of The McMahon Report® provides excellent examples of the multitude of services we provide to assist clubs in operating more efficiently while enhancing the member experience with current and relevant facility programs, amenities and strategic plans. We also spotlight Lynn Butler, GM of The Bogey Club in St. Louis, who retires from the Excellence in Club Management Awards panel of judges after nine years of devoted service. Lynn has been a stalwart member of the St. Louis Chapter of CMAA for over 30 years and has served in several leadership positions as she has mentored young people in the industry. We will miss Lynn’s calm, objective demeanor and devoted service to the Awards as she continues her position as the manager of The Bogey Club.
