CMC 100th Annual Conference & AGM

This spring, our in-person conference will welcome the industry’s top leaders to the CMC Annual Conference and Annual General Meeting. The event will kick off with member-only committee meetings throughout the day, followed by the Annual General Meeting.
 
Enjoy the Meat and Greet opening cocktail reception while you mix and mingle with your industry colleagues, CMC members and Members of Parliament.
 
This year’s focus will be on how #MeatMatters, whether about sustainability, climate change, data analytics, labour, AI and the economy. Stay tuned for speaker announcements.
 
Not to be missed is the CMC Awards Ceremony & Banquet Dinner, a celebration of our 100th anniversary and outstanding achievements – followed by a lounge bar area to keep mingling and for our associate members to invite other clients.
