CMA Meeting

The scientific session usually takes place on the fourth Saturday in June and is accredited for Continuous Professional Development (CPD). We are privileged to welcome excellent and diverse speakers each year and this year is no exception; the meeting is followed by a reception in the Master's Lodge and a 4-course dinner in Hall. Partners and guests are warmly invited and overnight accommodation is available.

The next annual CMA meeting will be on Saturday 29th June 2019.
