Exclusive Benefit for Registrants at this Meeting

If your travel plans are disrupted by flight cancellations or other travel delays and this causes you to be late or miss entirely the first morning session, IPGE now provides protection against loss of credits. If this happens to you and you report it by calling or emailing us we will create a complimentary CE Anywhere on-line account in your name with up to 5 free credits. This will allow you to earn the credits you missed without incurring additional cost. We hope that this inconvenience never happens, but since it often does, you are now covered.
