Why not show up a little early to participate in a Pre-Conference Workshop (PCW) or an Off-Site Institute (OSI)? The PCWs give you a chance to get recertified, learn about accreditation and more all before the conference even starts. The OSI’s are your chance to join the Local Host and explore some of the amazing things New Orleans has to offer. All PCWs and OSIs are eligible for CEUs.
