The Association held an emergency Extraordinary General Meeting on Feb 13 2020. After the EGM, the Executive Committee had issued a resolution to cancel the 2018-2019 AGM

✔ Professional Designation Examination

One examination on the CCP professional designation was held on Sept 16 2020

✖ Quarterly TGIF

Although we have very close in organizing a TGIF in the second quarter in 2020, the sudden surge of infection cases of the COVID-19 in Hong Kong had left us with no choice but to cancel the event

✘ Annual Award

The Association has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Award as we have postponed the presentation ceremony of the 2019 to this year AGM

Finally, please allow me to, on behalf of HKCCMA, thank you for making the time to our online AGM and wish you good health and every success in the Year of the Ox!
