The RMA hosts and supports a huge number of events each year, from flagship conferences to study days, workshops and chapter meetings.We also invite applications for conference affiliation, which can include assistance with publicity and branding, or financial support if required. RMA Events are overseen by our Events Committee (see RMA Committees).
Upcoming Events: due to coronavirus/covid-19, public gatherings are not currently permitted in the UK. All RMA and RMA-affiliated events in April and May 2020 have been cancelled or postponed. For events further ahead, participants should check with organisers/host institutions. We will continue to update our events listings.
