Auction Now Live!

CMAC’s annual auction is coming up and will take place online from October 3 to October 31 and feature a live auction on Tuesday, October 17 during the President’s Dinner! We are seeking support for the auction in the form of donations for both the silent and live auctions.

Your donation will be seen by over 650 CMAC members, corporate partners, and club industry colleagues. It’s an excellent way to get your name and services out in front of the masses and a great way to help raise funds too!  Contributions generated from the auction are put towards the Professional Manager Development (PMD) Fund. The fund provides bursaries for members attending Business Management Institute (BMI) and Club Management Institute (CMI) courses, the fee payments for those challenging the CCM exam, and is instrumental in the ongoing development of the BMI courses hosted in Canada. The auction has previously contributed over $30,000 to the Fund, which will once again be our goal for 2023.  

It is our hope that you would consider providing an item that could be included in the online auction or the live auction being held at the President's Dinner in October. 
Here is a list of some of the most popular items that have been donated in the past:
• Hotel stays
• Spa visits
• Dining and wine packages from your Club
• Sporting event tickets
• Big box and online store gift certificates (valid across Canada)
• Services gift certificates … such as window washing, house cleaning, car detailing
• Car rental
• RV rentals
• Autographed sports memorabilia
• Golf clubs/bag/clothing
• A spectacular wine, scotch, or the like…
• Original art
• Jewellery

Please complete the online Auction Donation Commitment Form for each item that you wish to donate. A link to the online auction will be sent to all CMAC members. We encourage members to share the link with family, friends, and club industry colleagues. Donated items will be accepted and added on a weekly basis until Friday, October 7, 2023. 

If you have any questions regarding the auction, please contact the CMAC National Office at
On behalf of the Professional Manager Development (PMD) Fund Committee, we would like to thank you for your continued support and assistance with this valuable initiative.
