National Council Conference

Continuing Education Credits at the 2015 National Council Conference

The 2015 National Council Conference offers continuing education (CE) credits for approved sessions through multiple professional associations. Review the 2015 CE and CME Attendee Packet to see which sessions qualified for CEs and CMEs at this year’s National Council Conference.

Electronic Badge Scanners
In 2013, we left behind paper sign-in sheets and transitioned to an automated system in which attendees scan their badges electronically as they enter and leave sessions approved for CE credits.  This new practice was very successful, and we are continuing with it.
