2020 Calendar of Events

Educational Meeting

Monthly educational meetings are held the second Thursday of the month in September, October, November, and May.  We also host a Saturday workshop in March, and our annual daytime Margaret L. King lecture in April. There are no educational meetings the remaining months of the year.

Continuing professional education is available free to SEMDA members at each meeting, and at a cost of $10.00/CPEU for non-members.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, educational meetings will be VIRTUAL for the 2020 year. Stay tuned for more information on how to register and attend.

Presentation will be available on SEMDA’s website for one week. If you watch the recording, you will be asked to complete a quick quiz in order to receive the certificate for continuing education.
