This conference will be presented via Livestream and will be recorded.  Participants will receive 12.0 hours of CEs for the four sessions they view live. 

We know that it can be difficult to choose what session you want to attend at a live conference.  There might be two different sessions at the same time that look interesting.  Have no fear!  After the conference is over participants may access the recordings for all of the sessions through 8/2/21.

Viewing recorded sessions is for content only and does not earn additional CEs or NASP CPDs. 

Participants must attend the live conference in order to access the recordings.

Post Conference "À la Carte" Conference Recorded Session Opportunity:

Participants who are unable to attend the conference on 6/14 and 6/15/21 may register for individual recorded sessions through eCampus. 

À la carte recorded sessions are considered asynchronous professional development and will have quizzes and engagement features embedded in the Canvas course. Due to these quizzes/engagement questions, participants are able to earn 3.0 hours of  eCampus CEs/NASP CPDs.  

À la carte courses will be available 6/21/21 through 8/2/21 for $45.00 a session.  These individual sessions are not in the eCampus registration system yet, but will be added soon.
