CMA Conference, 6-7 June 2017, Melbourne Convention Centre

We're now busy pulling the conference program together. In 2017 we're meeting on Level 1 of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. This gives us more meeting space, and more exhibition space, than we've ever had before!

The convention centre is attached to the Hilton South Wharf, and we are securing room blocks with both the Hilton and nearby hotels.

If your organisation provides products or services to the Christian sector, or if your ministry provides meaningful opportunities for board or volunteer service, you'll want to be part of our biggest ever exhibition. Contact us now for details.


International Accountability Summit


ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) have invited CMA to be the hosts of the second 'International Accountability Summit' immediately prior to the CMA conference. This will involve 40-50 leaders from the 15-20 countries that are commencing Accountability-Accrediting ministries similar to our own CMA Standards Council.

This also means that the ECFA Leadership will be attending the CMA Conference, bringing decades of wisdom across the Pacific with them!
