Continuing Education Credits

We will be providing up to 18 Continuing Education Credits for the Conference.  Attendees who want to receive CEU credits, must complete an evaluation at the end of each day, and initial their attendance in the attendance log.  You may pick up your certificate before you leave the conference.  Attendees will also receive a duplicate certificate by email.

Parking

Parking is included and available in one of the two closest VCU public parking decks, either the deck at 801 W. Cary St. (Main + Cherry) or the deck at 1201 W. Cary St. (Cary and Harrison).  You will get a timestamped ticket when you pull in. You will receive a barcoded parking card/receipt at registration which you will swipe when you’re leaving the garage instead of paying. The deck at Main and Cherry is the closest one to the conference venue.

To get to the Cabell Library from the West Main Street Parking Deck, leave the parking deck and head North on S. Cherry St. Take a left on Floyd Ave., followed by a right at the crosswalk adjacent to the VCU Student Commons. The Cabell Library will be on your left.

Handicap Parking and Accommodations are available. Please contact Tom Bannard at (804) 366-8027 and bannardtn@vcu.edu.

Video

All talks will be recorded, edited and posted publicly within 6 weeks of the conference.  If you would like to avoid being a part of these videos, we suggest positioning yourself accordingly!

Food

Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten Free options will be available for lunches.  Breakfast sandwiches and gluten free options will be available on Tuesday for breakfast.  Wednesday and Thursday, there will be bagels, fruit, coffee(Recovery Roast!) and tea. Please let me know if you have additional needs that are not met by the above.
