This program is pending approval for up to 2.25 ASHA CEUs (Various levels; Professional area.)
American Academy of Audiology
AG Bell is pending approval by the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) to offer Academy CEUs. AAA approval of this continuing education activity does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products or clinical procedures. This course is offered for up to 2.25 CEUs.
Professionals can also request documentation of instructional hours attended while at the convention to verify their attendance for teaching licensure or other certification requirements.
Certificates of Learning
AG Bell is pleased to offer documentation for educators or others who require it for state certification/ licensure. Teachers, please be sure to check with your local/state certifying body to determine whether or not the hours that you earn at Convention will be accepted for your licensure. General certificates of attendance will not be issued.
Attendees must indicate each organization for which they will need CEU verification on the CEU worksheet found in the convention program book which will be distributed onsite. Please indicate all of the certificates you requested in your registration form and submit these completed documents to the CEU desk prior to departure. A certificate verifying the CEUs earned/instructional hours attended for each organization requested will be provided following the Convention and filed with the organization on your behalf, free of charge.
Incomplete CEU materials or those received after the close of Convention in Denver cannot be processed by AG Bell and will not be submitted to any of the organizations outlined above. Please be sure to drop off your completed CEU worksheet before you leave the Convention!
WHAT ELSE IS THERE AT THE CONVENTION?
In addition to earning valuable CEUs, as a professional attendee, you will:
- gain a fresh and innovative perspective on current topics in the field
- learn first-hand about the newest techniques, approaches and technology for listening and spoken language development
- meet the professionals leading the field of listening and spoken language into the future
The AG Bell convention is the biggest professional event dedicated to listening and spoken language development and as such offers unparalleled networking opportunities to connect with colleagues from other geographical areas and foster new professional relationships. It is by collaborating that we gain insight into the experiences of others who face the same key common issues and concerns regardless of location and professional environment.
AG Bell Convention's social events are a great way to connect with colleagues, and to meet other professionals. Share tips and strategies, get inspired and build connections with mentors that can guide you on your career path.
The Exhibit Hall will showcase the latest innovative, newly released products and services from more than 70 exhibitors, giving you a hands-on opportunity to explore what materials align with your practice. Exhibitors will give you the opportunity to see the latest and greatest in hearing technology! The Research Symposium presentations will also share current research and special projects in the field.
The AG Bell Convention is a one-of-a-kind, all-in-one event for professionals! We hope to see you there!
