Continuing Education Credits
Most 2018 Annual Meeting sessions are eligible for continuing education credit. If a specific session is not eligible, it is noted in the conference program. Conference attendees who wish to receive continuing education credits and a continuing education certificate of attendance at the 2018 Annual Meeting must:
- Purchase continuing education credits, either using the 2018 Annual Meeting registration form or in person at the registration desk. The purchase price is $80 per credit type for SBM members and $100 per credit type for non-members.
- Complete an online evaluation within 30 days of the Annual Meeting (by Monday, May 7, 2018). Registration packets distributed on site will include a link to the evaluation website. SBM national office staff will also email the link to attendees. On the evaluation website, attendees will find a general meeting evaluation as well as session-specific evaluations; both types of evaluations must be completed to receive continuing education credit. Each session-specific evaluation asks questions pertaining to the session, so it may be helpful to take notes during the session. Be sure to attend each session in its entirety as the session evaluation will include an attestation statement indicating attendance for the entire session.
Immediately after attendees complete the online evaluation, continuing education certificates will be emailed to the address they indicated on the evaluation. Alternately, attendees can print their own certificates from the screen that appears immediately following completion of the online evaluation.
