CEU’s. We are in the process of securing approval for continuing education units and will post information here as soon as it is finalized. We will not know how many total continuing education units will be available until after we receive program proposals from our attendees. Please submit your proposals as soon as possible to help all with this planning, but it is likely that the earliest we will be able to estimate total CEUs will be late May. We will post updates here as we receive proposals.
