We have powerful sessions and influential speakers scheduled for this years Conference.



We have extended an invite to our Honorary Member - Mike Leemhuis, President of Ocean Reef Club, to join us again as one of our highly acclaimed key note speakers. Certification combined with education are what Mike believes are the cornerstones of success in business and in life, and to that end Mike is a Certified Club Manager (CCM) and Certified Chief Executive (CCE) through the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA), as well as a certified PGA member through the PGA of America (A13) and the PGA of South Africa (Master Professional). In 2011 Mike was awarded the CMAA Club Manager of the Year award for his dedication and commitment to the club industry and in 2012 Congressional Country Club was named #1 Platinum Club in America under Mike’s leadership.

We are excited to announce that Wolfgang Riebe will be back this year as our Master of Ceremonies and motivational speaker. From strategic & inspirational speaking where he engages his audiences on an authentic level, sharing real-life experiences, academic research and magical effects that link with his messaging to enhancing and leaving practical, sustainable tools that delegates can implement immediately.

Wolfgang's session, 'PowerCharge your Memory' on the second day of the conference is definately not one to be missed!
