Jacie-Lee Lambertsays:

Are the conference sessions available for CEU’s now? I cannot seem to find them anywhere on the PTSA site.

Teresa Hennesseysays:

Hi Jacie-Lee. Conference attendees received their statement of attendance following the conference and presentation slides were available online until September 30.

Jennifer Corpuzsays:

How does registration work. We just register the one time on Friday (early or late) and after that we do have to register back in for Saturday and Sunday or specific speakers? So we have to complete the assessment for each speaker to receive CEUS?

Teresa Hennesseysays:

Hi Jennifer. There was only one registration option this year that covered all sessions and events. When you arrive at the hotel, you will check in once at the registration table. There will be information on the tables during the conference for how to complete evaluation surveys for each education session you attend. At the close of the conference, registered attendees will receive a statement of attendance by email that you can use to document the CEU for the sessions you attended.
