CLA members in the Midlands were able to participate in the meeting from our office in central Birmingham. The collegiate spirit of charity law was very much in evidence as we exchanged perspectives on the presentations:

- Paul Bater and Alana Petraske on "The Common Reporting Standard: From Theory to Practice"
Those present were very positive about the event and we look forward to hosting further meetings during the coming year.
