* Detailed schedule to come soon

There will be CECs earned for the ASHE virtual conference. The good news is one could earn more CECs at this year’s virtual conference than past ASHE conferences. CECs can be earn during the live sessions, and On Demand sessions as well. The total amount of CECs is to be determined, but you can earn up to 25.5 CECs (1 CEC = 1 contact hour). ASHE is still working on finalizing the schedule.
