2018 Annual General Meeting

This year’s AGM will be a build up from last’s year’s. The AGM deliberations will start in provincial chapters where various issues will be discussed and consensus built will be presented to the Council meeting. The council meeting will debate on all issues presented from the Provincial chapters and other issues which will be directly presented to it by the membership and the executive. The Consensus of the council will be presented to the AGM for a resolution vote. The AGM will also debate the financial report and the President’s report.


About the Scientific conference

Every year, ZMA holds an annual scientific conference. This is a forum that provides a platform for scientists to present various research papers conducted within or outside the country. Over the years, interest has grown from various researchers to show case their works at the AGM. This growth of interest is evidenced in the number of abstracts received by the scientific committee. The number of papers presented are normally limited by time. This year, we wish to increase the number of papers being presented by including the poster presentation which will run throughout the day. The diversity of the professions mandates that scientific presentations are as broad as possible to encourage maximal participation from various specialties. Therefore, applications for abstract presentation will be open to all specialties.

This year’s conference will see more panel discussions to increase participation while maximising time constraints. Due to the diversity of the programming, the participants will be able to earn maximum CPD points for license renewal.
