Are you headed to the CMAA Conference and Business Expo this year? VGM Club is! Thanks to members and non-members alike, the positive response VGM Club’s booth received last year blew us away. Our booth was a place to relax, grab something to drink, and hang out in our backyard. This year we wanted to take that idea up a notch, so we are going to park this food truck in our booth and serve food samples from our friends at Sysco, beverages from PepsiCo, and be decked from head to toe in the latest fashion from Chef Works.

Join us at booth #1129

In addition to PepsiCo and Sysco, we will also have Supplies on the Fly, DIRECTV, Affinity Club Underwriters, Chef Works, and Gallo Furniture featured in our booth. Leading up to the Business Expo, we will be previewing speakers and leading club professionals on our Club Cents podcast feed. Check back here to find them as they become available.


CMAA Preview Part 1: Anne Stryhn

Cam Schultz talks with one of the winners of the 2017 Excellence in Club Management: Rising Star Award, Anne Stryhn, Assistant General Manager at the Country Club of Virginia. Together, they chat about the Rising Star award, along with how her time as catering director informs her decisions as the Assistant GM. The two also discuss hot topics related to the upcoming CMAA Show.

CMAA Preview Part 2: Jen Burgess

Cam Schultz talks with CMAA educational speaker Jen Burgess of Plus One Hospitality about her session titled “Heading the Table – Creating Better Restaurant Managers.” Together the two tease Jen’s session, talk Plus One Hospitality, and management best practices.

CMAA Preview Part 3: Lawrence McFadden

Lawrence McFadden, CMC and General Manager of The Union Club in Cleveland, Ohio hops on the show to bookend our CMAA Preview Series. Together, Cam and Lawrence talk about the CMAA, benefits of the show, and tease his educational session titled “Food and Beverage Trends for Future Success”.


From the CMAA Conference webpage, “The two-day Club Business Expo is one of the hospitality industry’s fastest-growing shows. Explore the products and services offered by more than 250 companies showcasing industry-leading trends and innovations. Nearly every product and service that a club management professional could purchase for his or her club is showcased in the Expo.”

The CMAA Conference and Business Expo highlights the best in the club industry. It also highlights the services we strive to offer our members all year. With more than 100 partners available to your club with negotiated pricing, terms or rebates, VGM Club uses the CMAA Conference and Business Expo as an opportunity to not only explain our solutions but also give you a chance to relax in a fun environment.

We hope you stop by our booth to meet with us, grab a snack, a drink, and learn more about how we can save your club time and money. Join us at booth #1129 during this year’s CMAA Conference and Business Expo.
