Venue Benefits

Code compliance and good business practices are the backbone to your success as a license holder. CMAC works with venues to educate and assess on full compliance measures, offers free referrals to and discounted legal consultations, and provides special insurance rates negotiated by CMAC for its members. As drivers of our local economies, our business practices must be solid -- our communities depend on us. Venue Members enjoy access to special events, the e-newsletter, educational opportunities and workshops, and a voice at City Hall and in Sacramento. CMAC also offers additional benefits and services tailored specifically toward venue owners and other license holders.
