Newcastle CPA Branch Meetings

Local branch meetings of the CPA usually take place every two weeks. These are an important part of our activities, since we discuss ongoing plans, projects and action. Those who seek to become new members are normally expected to attend these meetings for a few months, to show that they are serious about joining the CPA. As a member or someone seeking to become a member, you will receive a reminder from our branch secretary.
