Where will the conference be held?


What is the difference between a CEU and a certificate of attendance?

A CEU is a unit of continuing education recorded on a transcript at a college or university. Many professionals need CEUs to stay licensed. A certificate of attendance says you were at the conference for a certain number of hours (often adequate for parent training requirements). Check with your agency to see if you need CEUs.

Attendees will be able to earn social work continuing education credits for most of the workshops as long as they attend the live sessions. (We are still working on providing credits for recorded sessions.)
