The Clan Macpherson Association Gathering 2020 Update

It is with deep regret that we announce that the CMA Gathering 2020 in Badenoch is cancelled due to the current world‑wide pandemic. If a letter is needed for forwarding to a Travel Insurance company, then please request one from the Secretary at .

Under the terms of the CMA constitution we need to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM). It is now clear that restrictions are still likely to be such that the AGM will not be possible in the form notified to members in Creag Dhubh 2020. The CMA Council met on 30 May and determined that for this year only the AGM will move to an on‑line event. The on‑line AGM will open on Monday July 27 and close at midnight on Saturday August 8. You will be able to access it at clan‑macpherson.org/cma2020agm and there you will be able to read the reports and ask questions. Access will be by login using a password to ensure it is members who are attending and voting. An email will be sent from cma.2020agm@clan‑macpherson.org to all members with the details of the AGM and how to get access. If you have not received that email by 20 June, please send an email request to the CMA Secretary, Sandy Macpherson, at giving your address and Branch. If you want to propose a motion or nominate someone for office, the procedure for doing that is in Section 10 of the Constitution.

For anybody who has already booked and paid for Gathering events a full refund will be made on request to the secretary (email address as above). You may also wish to leave your payment in place against the 2021 Gathering (you could reverse that decision later if you change your mind). The Treasurer will action the repayment request but please bear with her as she and her husband are farmers, and are, therefore, in a very busy period.

Please feel free to contact the CMA Chairman or Secretary for any further information, their contact details are listed on the Clan Macpherson Association Officers page.
