The MALG North East & Yorkshire Regional Members Meeting will be held virtually on 29 September 2022. Members will receive an invitation and will be asked to register their attendance. Should you not receive an invite and feel you are eligible please contact info@malg.org.uk. Agenda details to follow…

The theme of the day will be reflecting on the recent CSA report Wide of the Mark: Assessing the delivery and value of free-to-client debt advice. We are delighted to announce the author of that report, Henry Aitchison, has agreed to join us as one of our guest speakers. The aim of the session will be to present a high-level summary of the report findings from CSA perspective, and we will be inviting the other SME speakers to respond to those findings from their own organisation’s perspectives with an opportunity for those attending to comment/ask questions in the panel session at the end.
