We've heard from lots of CMA members that it's been too long since we've been able to get together. We agree! So adopting the spirit of the 'new normal', we're going hybrid. Our upcoming Board Training Day will provide the sorely-missed face-to-face networking and learning together, for those who can meet in Epping NSW, but also provides online opportunities for those who can't make it in person.

For virtual delegates, the sessions highlighted in orange in the program at left will be streamed live via our new Hybrid Event Portal. You will be able to partake in the Q&A sessions along with the in-person delegates.

For ALL delegates, those same highlighted sessions will also be available on-demand, for a period of two weeks following the event.

So, to be clear, those attending the in-person event are able to attend some sessions that won't be available to virtual delegates.

The Church and Ministry Board Training Days are a ministry of CMA, and the CMA Standards Council
