CCA's 1-Day Introductory Package
Selecting a qualified Consulting Partner for your Club is a serious decision
At CCA, we recognize your need to conduct due-diligence and to become familiar with the capabilities of our firm. That is why we offer our clients a lively full-day session with David Shaw, lead project manager, to become familiar with CCA and our capabilities.
Spend an entire day discussing your past/present/future in a highly interactive session where we identify your Club’s immediate goals and longer term ambitions.
Afterward, we supply you with a written summary containing our viewpoints, suggestions, and possible next steps.
It’s the perfect opportunity to determine if our services align with your team's vision.
We are happy to focus on your most pressing matters, but will always try to give you a universal viewpoint of our impressions and takeaways from the visit.
Of course, if your Club moves forward with CCA services, you are provided a full credit for the initial visitation fee (the nominal one-day visitation fee is $2,500 plus travel expenses).

David Shaw, Principal
ABOUT CLUB CONSULTING ASSOCIATES
CCA’s founder, David Shaw, brings over thirty-five years of invaluable experience in managing luxury private club across major competitive markets. His experience is coupled with a further decade of specialized consulting at some of the finest clubs in the industry.
David successfully led and completed projects in the most challenging assignments in the private club world. He has been called upon to tackle seemingly impossible situations, ensuring that club operations continue to run seamlessly and the incumbent management team is fully engaged in CCA’s efforts.
During the course of his ten years in consulting, David had the honor of assuming full-time management and overseeing the complete renaissance of a prestigious Palm Beach Club. Throughout that nine-year tenure, the Club quickly transformed into a model operation, achieving excellence in every measurable metric.
Shortly after his arrival, and in recognition of the incredible financial opportunities that come with qualified management, the membership displayed their confidence by embarking upon a historic and ambitious $45M+ capital improvement plan. It was agreed to manage this multiyear plan "in-house" by assembling a team of the finest professionals in the business.
In addition to his continuing role in operations, David took on the crucial responsibility of being the project Owner's Representative during the long construction phase. This dual role ensured that membership interests were safeguarded, all details were meticulously monitored, and financial and delivery parameters were met with precision.
The Master Plan's positive financial impact not only facilitated an almost-complete rebuilding of the 50-year-old facility, but also allowed for the complete retirement of long-term debt. The results were remarkable, leading to the longest waiting list in the Club's history -- even after a six-fold increase in joining fees to $250K. Many who witnessed the eventual transformation knew the Club had achieved the impossible.
In addition to capital overhauls, all operating systems were simultaneously addressed. This included complete revisions to by-laws, rules/regulations, employee handbook, implementation of international staffing program, and development of member services across all areas. Notably, turnover was negligible: the longtime and loyal employees were all included in the dividends!
At CCA, we are thrilled to extend these same exceptional resources to your Club, replicating the outstanding results that are possible at most every Club. CCA has consistently delivered its clients with value-adds and fostered the development of creative channels to achieve real results.
We are unwavering in upholding the highest levels of independence, objectivity, ethics, and integrity in every facet of our work. The best interests of the membership are always at the forefront of every decision.
Just like any successful renovation, we understand that it all starts with building a strong foundation and dedicated team to support the entire project.
