Future Meeting Formats-- Please Comment
We are looking at different types of meeting formats. We plan to continue with dinner meetings that are sponsored by vendors, but we recognize that some employers may not allow their employees to participate in such meetings. We are considering planning an alternate-type meeting in which we would have an educational speakers and offer continuing education credit for meeting attendance. The meeting would still be in a restaurant in a private room, and you would be able to purchase your own dinner, dessert, and/or drinks. Think of the benefits of not "having" to eat every course!
We have made contact with restaurants who are willing to accomodate our group with no charge for room rental, and they have offered to have separate checks for everyone. The cost to the chapter would be paying a small hororarium to the speaker. We would be able to get the accreditation for the program for AANP. They will not allow accreditation of programs from vendors which is why we have only offered credit hours for special events like the diabetes symposium last year.
We are allowing comments for 1 week on this proposed meeting type, so please post any thoughts. If you prefer to comment another way, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to getting your opinions!
Have a great week,
Your UAPRN Atlanta Chapter Officers
