The Partners Program

The Partners Program was developed by Club Leaders Forum to provide private club managers with a trusted resource for discovering the best providers in the industry. Our partners share the same values as the finest clubs in the world and consistently meet and exceed the highest standards of excellence.

Partner Benefits

LinkedIn Campaigns Every quarter, Club Leaders Forum shares news, stories, and content from Platinum Partners on LinkedIn to a targeted audience of over 2000 private club general managers worldwide. This content receives regular engagement from respected leaders in the private club industry.

Networking Events We host the Excellence in Platinum Clubs celebration and The Mastermind Forum:

  • Excellence in Platinum Clubs Celebration: A highly anticipated part of the annual CMAA Conference, this event provides an exciting opportunity for Platinum Club managers and Platinum Partners to connect in a vibrant social atmosphere.

  • The Mastermind Forum: A weekend-long event that brings together Platinum Club general managers from around the world to share insights and knowledge that elevate and define industry standards. It's also a chance for partners to amplify and align their brand with Platinum Clubs through various event collateral.

The FORUM is a 20-year-old subscription-based publication providing relevant, informative, and creative content to decision-makers in the private club industry. It is electronically distributed biannually (Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter) to private clubs around the world, including 300 Platinum Clubs of America, 311 Platinum Clubs of the World, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, and over 2,400 additional private club subscribers.
