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. For more information on the individual student chapters and universities associated with the National Capital Chapter, please click on the link to the left.

Each year the student development committee plans educational and social events for all of the areas summer interns. This year, we have a wide variety of opportunities for interns to take part in that will build camaraderie amongst the students and local managers and increase the students knowledge of Club Management.

If you are employing interns this summer, please make sure they take advantage of these complimentary events! Please sign up on the website! Space is limited so act quickly. Managers are welcome for a majority of the events so please come out and support our future club managers.

If you have any questions regarding the events, please do not hesitate to email Bethany Wood at
