Student Development

Greetings and welcome to the Student Development page of the National Capital Chapter of the CMAA. This page is maintained by the Student Development Committee, who strive to provide career opportunities for students in Washington DC area clubs.


The Student Development Committee, in support of the educational mission of CMAA, facilitates meaningful interaction for students outside the classroom. Through social, cultural, leadership, educational and recreational experiences, students are encouraged to educate themselves, to form professional relationships and networks, and to become active participants in Private Club Industry.

The Student Development Committee promotes purposeful involvement of students by:

  • Fostering an atmosphere in which students share ideas freely and work collaboratively.
  • Providing a safe and inclusive environment.
  • Offering opportunities to develop leadership skills.
  • Supporting the growth of student organizations.

The National Capital Chapter is proud to be associated with the James Madison University Student Chapter of CMAA. Additional support and involvement in the form of internships, scholarships, and education is given to Virginia Tech, Penn State, and George Mason University.
