If the session does reach max capacity, you can join the waitlist. If a spot opens up, you’ll be notified via email of the change. However, in the meantime, you will need to select another session. We encourage early registration to avoid running into this problem.


You will get an email confirmation once you complete your conference registration with all the CE sessions you selected. However, you can also log in to the Attendee Service Center (ASC) portal at any time to view your schedule.

To confirm which type of CE is awarded for each session, please make sure to review each session individually.


In order to obtain credit, you must scan in and out of each of your selected sessions and be in attendance for the entire duration of the session. LAC staff will scan your badge upon entering/exiting the session room. Additionally, you will need to complete an evaluation survey for each session. Only when these two steps are completed, will you be awarded continuing education credit.
