Annual Business Luncheon
This is the CMSA’s main event in each year and it targets solicitors, regulators and other participants in the sector. Each Business Luncheon has a theme carefully selected to examine topical issues in the capital market.
Geared towards capacity building for members, the Association organizes quarterly Members’ Fora, sponsored by member firms. Each Members’ Forum features the selection of topical issues, which are discussed and debated on.
The Members’ Lunch is a veritable platform for interaction between members of the Association and with the carefully selected market participants that are invited to speak on these occasions.
