Swinging for Scholarships: CPMCA Golf Tournament Tees Up Future Industry Leaders

California sunshine and friendly competition set the stage for a highly anticipated event: CPMCA’s annual Career Development Scholarship Golf Tournament. 

Originally scheduled for 2023 but postponed due to Hurricane Hilary, the January 29th gathering at Newport Beach Country Club finally brought together over 180 golfers for a day dedicated to raising scholarship funds for future industry leaders.

We were thrilled to have General President of the United Association, Mark McManus, attend this year’s tournament. CPMCA appreciates all that he has done to bring visibility to the hard working individuals in our industry.

Investing in the Future, One Swing at a Time

While the challenging course, picturesque views, and friendly competition provided a fun atmosphere, the true significance lies in the impact it makes. The tournament fosters connections within the industry, celebrates a shared passion, and contributes to shaping a skilled and passionate future workforce.


The success of the event is a testament to CPMCA’s commitment to fostering the next generation of skilled professionals. By providing financial assistance and mentorship opportunities, the association ensures a bright future for the industry, benefiting businesses and communities alike.

More Than Just a Game

“We’re incredibly grateful for the unwavering support of our contractor members and industry partners,” shared Michelle Lynn, Director of Special Projects for CPMCA. “This tournament isn’t just about celebrating our industry – it’s about investing in its future. The funds we raise here directly support our scholarship program, which has empowered deserving students to pursue their dream careers for over two decades.”

The tournament serves as a cornerstone for CPMCA’s scholarship program. Since its inception, the program has awarded financial assistance to countless individuals, alleviating financial burdens and allowing them to focus on their studies. In 2023 alone, the program awarded $2,500 each to 30 students – a testament to the impact of the golf tournament and the generosity of its participants.
