The CMA Annual Meeting is held each August. Members attend business sessions that consider critical issues referred by General Council.

The annual meeting includes:

  • Ceremonial session: CMA installs the president, elects its officers, presents awards and confers honorary and senior memberships.
  • Members’ Forum: Turns the floor of General Council over to member observers and members joining online, so that they can ask CMA leaders questions about issues of concern.
  • Open invitation to members: For the past several years, invitations have been sent to member physicians of the host and surrounding provinces to attend and observe the meeting at no cost.
