Shrewsbury - Friday 7th and Saturday 8th October 2022

The Barnabas Church Centre, Longden Coleham, Shrewsbury, SY3 7DN

Registration is at 1:00pm on Friday 7th October. The conference will end at 4:00pm on Saturday 8th October.

We have an exciting agenda you can see here. We are delighted to be celebrating 25 years of CMA, with an address from CMA's Founder and CEO Heather Keates, and a keynote speech from Richard Payne, Manager of Harpenden Money Advice Centre; one of the longest running centres in the CMA family. Stage presentations will also include CMA's External Relations, Trustfolio Credit Reports, CMA in Scotland, and CMA Regional Groups.

Our seminars will cover Working with Vulnerable Adults, The Money Mentor role in CMA Connect Centres, Electronic Communications with Clients, Interview Skills for team Recruitment, and Social Media and Your Centre.

For such a time as this ...

In celebration of 25 years of CMA, the charity's Trustees have agreed to subsidise every conference place in 2022, and we hope this means as many of your team can join us as possible. Tickets for the entire event start at £10 including food. You can find further information below.

We are delighted to be meeting face to face for our conference in 2022, but for team members who cannot attend, the conference will be fully video recorded including stage sessions and seminars and made available in Centre Resources for every centre following the conference - so you won't miss out.

Please download and print your Conference Invitation to display for your team in your CMA Centre office.

When these are sold out, a small number of rooms will be available at the Travelodge in Shrewsbury with breakfast included for you at the conference venue. Pre-booked places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please advise us of any accessibility requirements at your time of booking.

Should you wish to book your own accommodation (for a longer stay / alternative accommodation) please book into the conference using a non-accommodation option and make your own accommodation and breakfast arrangements. A number of B&B's and hotels are located within a short distance.

Room Sharing:

Should you wish to book CMA accommodation and share a room with another delegate (please note these are likely to be double rooms, not twin rooms) please book one conference place with accommodation, and one without. Then email [email protected] as soon as possible to indicate which delegates will be sharing so we can update the hotel's rooming list.
