LASACT UPDATES

LASACT ’17 has been a tremendous success, with our attendee numbers far exceeding expectations. This year we’ve gone digital and we’re using a scanning system to track and allocate all credit hours. Once attendees have completed the conference they will receive a conference survey via email. Registrants must complete the survey in order to receive a certificate via email reflecting their allocated hours.
