OUR 35 CHAPTERS

The MCAA has promoted the creation of Chapters in different geographic regions as a way of facilitating communication with its members and engaging them in the development of the Association. MCAA Chapters:

  • Encourage local networking and establish mutually-beneficial relationships between the MCAA and its alumni within a defined geographic zone;
  • Initiate activities that add value to the Alumni network and input to the general body;
  • Recruit, attract, support and facilitate connections between MC fellows and alumni;
  • Sponsor and support activities that will enhance the image of MCAA.
  • Join a chapter in the region you live in.

If there is not a chapter in your area, what about starting one?

There are also several ‘Regional Groups’ that are not ‘official’ MCAA Chapters, but which provide similar local networking opportunities; these can be found in the ‘General Interest’ category under the ‘Groups’ tab in the top navigation menu.
