Monthly meetings are typically held on the second Sunday of the month. The meeting includes a presentation on topics such as therapeutic methods and theory, marketing in private practice, working with specific populations, dealing with managed care, etc.
Meetings are free and CEUs are available for a nominal fee.
The monthly meetings provide an excellent opportunity to network with peers and expand your professional referral base. Some meetings are specifically designed as networking functions, including the Annual Dinner and the annual Intern Meeting, which focuses specifically on issues related to pre-licensed members.
