CTC East Midlands Region is the sole survivor of a number of 'regional DA's' set up over 20 years ago. In addition to facilitating a close liaison and collaboration between the six full member groups within the region, CTC East Midlands Region also organises, in normal circumstances, three main events each year.

Tom Page commented that the organisation was keen to promote closer links between member groups, very much as CTC East Midlands Region is currently doing in its own area. "It’s really encouraging to see collaboration between different Member Groups. As an organisation, even if we’re no longer a ‘club’ I think it’s important we retain the positive aspect of the ‘old days’, including the sense of community and identity."
