On a periodic basis, the Chapter offers a mini-course on the same night as the chapter meetings. These popular one-hour sessions, available for a moderate additional fee, are held prior to the dinner meeting and enable participants to obtain an additional PDU as well as learn about another topic of interest. Seats are limited and typically sell out, so early registration is recommended.
Advance registration for the mini-course is required. Courses are posted on our website and registration can be completed securely via MasterCard, VISA, American Express, or DISCOVER card. There are no early-registration discounts available for mini-courses.
We are sorry, but we are unable to accept walk-in registrations.
