31 March 2020: Coronavirus Update. The situation is fast moving and we are continuing to monitor the global situation and its impact on our members, staff, exam candidates, students and the profession. More information for Members and Students in My CIMA.



Make the most of your membership by getting involved with the events in your area. They provide an opportunity to develop your skills with locally organised events as well as providing networking opportunities with other like-minded peers. If you are a student, keep an eye out for exam workshops as this will help you progress faster through your CIMA journey.

What's happening in 2020?

Upcoming conferences and events

With the rapidly changing situation and seriousness of COVID-19, we want to protect the health and well-being of our members, students and staff. We are taking necessary precautions by offering flexible attendance options, such as virtual attendance, where we can. Please monitor the website closely, for updates relating to specific events as there may be some cancellations or rescheduling. We are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely and we will notify attendees if we need to change our plans.


CIMA Africa is closely monitoring the recommendations from the World Health Organization and other government authorities about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are taking appropriate steps to assure the health and wellbeing of our global staff, our branch chairs, members, exam candidates and others within the profession. As you might be aware, cases have been reported in Nigeria and South Africa, two of our biggest markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. Serving the public interest continues to be the highest priority for the Association, its members and students, and we are providing the profession with educational content to help participants manage their business and clients’ needs during this event. All member & student events and activities have been cancelled until further notice. Any upcoming engagements in all regions and locations will be done virtually, rescheduled or scaled back if it will not significantly impact progress. The current guidelines are effective immediately until 1st May 2020. Please be assured that our teams will continue the partnership, efforts and initiatives that were already in place through alternative means. We will keep you updated.
