You should look forward to between .6 and .8 CEU hours for this event, and the cost of the day-long event will be approximately $100 (including lunch and break snacks). We are also working on the possibility of providing some or all of the content on the internet, based on our availability of resources. Stay tuned for more information on this website. We are hoping to secure some special speakers, so keep your fingers crossed and we will announce them here!
We are proud to announce our next workshop:
