CE and Attendance Information

Virtual Attendance

The 2021 AASECT Annual Conference will be taking place virtually this year as we continue to navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All conference events will be live-streamed and educational sessions will also be recorded and made available after the conference through 12/31/2021 as on-demand recordings for those that pre-register for the conference. Registration after the conclusion of the event will not be permitted.

CE Credit

Regarding CE Credits for this year, the Virtual Annual Conference will be offering AASECT and APA CE credits only. APA credits will only be given for sessions attended LIVE, in-person and synchronous during the event. No APA CE credits will be given for sessions attended on-demand. AASECT CE credits will be given for all sessions whether attended live or on-demand.

Though we wish we could have given credits for other CE approval agencies this year, limitations, time constraints and additional challenges of hosting the conference online made it impossible to proceed with additional approvals. We thank you in advance for your understanding of these issues.

CE Count

AASECT: A total of up to 16 AASECT CE credits may be earned through live and on-demand attendance at the main conference. On-demand sessions will be available through 12/31/2021.
