Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty regarding public gatherings for the foreseeable future, we have switched our Chapter trainings to an online model (Zoom) until further notice.
In addition, we have started offering monthly training sessions, each worth 1 hour CPE. There will be an optional hour of networking following each training session. To be eligible for CPE, attendees will be required to pre-register and participate in online polling. CFEs must respond to at least 75% of polling questions to have their training count toward CPE.
Dates and times of monthly trainings may vary, but are typically held sometime during the third week of each month. We will post all date and time information below.
Members who paid for the Dues and Seminars package will receive a link to the training sessions a day or two prior to the training without having to pay again. However, please still register for the sessions using the online form below so we know who will be attending. Thank you!
