Live Streamed General Session with speaker Ben Nemtin


Once again, we are offering a virtual access component. Individuals can register for virtual access only or they can register to attend the conference in-person. When registering for the in-person event, attendees will automatically be given access to the virtual component, so there is no need to register for both. For individuals who register for the virtual access component only, they may earn up to 28 CNE. This includes 20 concurrent sessions and 8 poster group sessions (85 posters in all). For individuals, who register for the in-person conference and have automatic access to the virtual component, they may earn up to 44 CNE with in-person and virtual access combined. This includes 8 concurrent sessions and 20 CNE from posters viewed (in-person) and up to an additional 24 CNE via virtual access.

Note: In-person attendees may not claim CNE credit for the matching virtual concurrent session or poster sessions previously attended at the conference itself. Therefore, whichever in-person session you are unable to attend while in Philadelphia, you may view the sessions offered virtually and earn CNE credits for it. You may not claim CNE for the same session twice. All those attending the event in-person will automatically have access to the virtual sessions.
