MASTERMIND Past Attendee Reviews  

I have been privileged to attend the last three Mastermind sessions from Club Leader's Forum. Each provided incredible learning experiences that resulted in a better-run Club and networking opportunities with the top GMs in the country.  

A hot topic at the recent Jupiter, Florida Mastermind centered on 2022 dues increases and the significant increases expected at most Clubs in 2023. Sharing this cutting-edge information with my Board last month armed us to consider raising our dues by 10% instead of the 5% previously discussed. Our operations will significantly improve with this aggressive move.

I have been fortunate to attend four Club Leaders Forum Masterminds, each time I come away with new ideas and inspiration to help guide our Club.
The opportunity exchange ideas with the best minds in the Club industry and share experiences and challenges makes me want to return.
One of the other great benefits is the comprehensive written report. I often refer to it throughout the year to get additional information our Leadership and Staff can use to maintain Platinum status.

I am a great believer in high-level education and communication with peers in our industry. The MASTERMIND FORUMS provide an excellent balance of education, roundtable discussion, and social events to make participation worthwhile. 
The Mastermind events present a rare opportunity for GMs to discuss premiere Private Club issues and topics with their counterparts. Additionally, Clubs from each Platinum category are present; Golf, Country, Yacht, Athletic and City Clubs. Although there are obvious differences, we discovered that many of us face similar challenges and opportunities.
