NSCP Goes Virtual! Join us for our Spring Conference April 20th

NSCP takes great pride in delivering quality education coupled with exemplary networking opportunities through our in-person events. However, due to the recent travel and meeting restrictions, NSCP’s Spring Conference on April 20 will go virtual.

Good news! NSCP will continue to offer certificates of attendance for continuing education programs*, including CLE, CPE and CSCP, to attendees participating in the live virtual conference. All you need is a computer and a stable Internet connection to participate.
All registrants will also receive recordings of all sessions that can be watched at later dates.

We look forward to having you join us!

*Verification of attendance will be required throughout the virtual session while it is live. Failure to verify at any point will prevent NSCP from providing a certificate for the session(s) in question. At this time, we cannot verify attendance for attendees who listen to recorded sessions and will not provide a certificate of attendance to those who do not attend the live sessions.
