Summary

The complete guide to catering private parties and club functions

Running parties and other private functions is one of the biggest parts of every club manager's job. Yet, until now there have been no professional guides to on-premises catering geared to the needs of this large and clearly defined area of hospitality. Written by club management professionals, this guide "speaks the language" of club managers everywhere. Focusing exclusively on the practices, terminology, and business demands unique to club catering, it covers all crucial management aspects of private parties and other club functions. It provides clear, step-by-step guidelines, helpful hints, and rules of thumb on subjects ranging from room selection and setup, meals, and beverages to staffing, member relations, and financial reports--everything the busy professional needs to keep things running smoothly.

An outstanding working resource for club managers who want to excel in every aspect of their job, A Club Manager's Guide to Private Parties and Club Functions:
* Is the first and only complete guide to catering private club functions
* Has been adopted as the official guide for the Club Managers Association of America certification program
* Covers all management aspects of catering club functions
* Includes valuable tips on marketing to and dealing with club clientele
