CMA Standards Council advocacy

Solomon says there is a time to be silent and a time to speak. As well as doing our core work of publicly accrediting well-governed, transparent and accountable Christian organisations, the CMA Standards Council also speaks into the public and regulatory debates which affect the governance of Christian organisations. We count it as a privilege and responsibility to present a Christian perspective on relevant issues in this space on behalf of our Partners and the Christian sector. See our Latest News for details.
