2018: Winter, Spring, Summer, and FNCE!
As you’re getting settled into 2018 and thinking through your goals or resolutions, it’s a good time to plan ahead for amassing some CPEUs. On the one hand, the convenience of self-study (AKA do-from-home-in-your-gym-clothes-or-pajamas) courses can’t be beat. On the other hand, the energy created when professionals get together under one roof, can be enthusing or down right thrilling!
