Who attends CMA Conferences?

Between 350 and 450 people typically attend the physical CMA conference each year, depending on the host city. This year the online conference is cheaper, more accessible, and doesn't involve travel costs!

Our delegates come from three broad groups: the Church world (including denominational offices / agencies), the para-church world, and the Christial professional / business world. Around 100 are CEOs, Senior Pastors and Principals of Christian Schools / Colleges.

- Senior pastors
- Executive pastors
- Administrators
- Board / council members
- Denominational leaders
- Denominational department executives
- CEOs
- General managers
- Fundraising managers

- Marketplace leaders

The CMA Conference is one of Australia's premier Professional Development events for the leaders and managers of the Christian sector.

Our delegates are Christian leaders who recognise the value of investing in training, but who want the input to be tailored to the unique spiritual factors that shape their organisations, and their roles.
