Did you know that you have to report every session you attended at a conference or event unless you’ve attended a Preferred Provider Program? For each session you attend, you’ll need to upload two pieces of documentation (in one PDF): proof that you attended the event (like a name tag or email confirmation) and a session description (from the host’s website or the on-site program). If the event has been pre-approved by CIC, your attendance will be loaded into your account (by the host organization) and you’ll just need to report the amount of hours you spent in continuing education sessions.
