Chapters & Groups

If you are interested in sharing information with peers from your field of study or starting a discussion about a relevant topic, create your own group and invite other registered researchers to join. MCAA members may wish to use this facility for a range of purposes: academic, scientific, career-development, associative, business, etc.

By promoting and participating in a group discussion, you will be able to contact and interact with researchers from different countries, thus strengthening your network of contacts and increasing your knowledge.

  • MCAA Chapters
  • MCAA Working Groups
  • Research Area Groups
  • General Interest Groups

Chapters(34)

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? 

NB: 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.
