Course Admittance

In an effort to improve the Continuing Education registration process, conference badges will not be mailed.  A few weeks prior to the event, you will be emailed your course itinerary with the most current course information including room numbers.  Please bring this confirmation letter with barcode to the Continuing Education Express Badge Counter onsite in CE Registration to have your badge and course itinerary printed when you arrive to the conference.  This will ensure that you have the most up to date course information on your badge barcode and course itinerary.

Your badge barcode will have all of your registered courses embedded in it, which is required for course entry. If you make any course changes onsite after you have already printed your badge, you will need to get a new badge printed so that your current courses are embedded in your updated badge barcode.
