Technology Innovations Conference 2012

The 2012 Technology Innovations Conference had almost 40 seminar topics in four conference tracks. All of these “Meet the Experts” seminars were certified for PDH credit. The May 1, 2014 conference is expected to follow a similar format. Check out the 2012 program below for an idea of what to expect on May 1, 2014. The 2014 conference is currently under development and will be posted by February 26.

All of the 2012 seminars were approved for professional development hour (PDH) credit for the attendees. As such, attendees could mix and match any of the 25 minute seminars to obtain up to 5.5 hours of PDH credit. Here were the guidelines:

  • There is no PDH credit for attending a single 25 minute session only. Minimum available PDH is 1 hour, maximum is 5.5 hours
  • Any multiple of half hour in between is available for total sessions attended
  • The keynote session cannot be included for PDH. Lunchtime session can be included

Complimentary registration (Note: Registration is complimentary. Advance sign up will save you time)
