With approximately 150 professionals in attendance absorbing knowledge from an impressive collection of experts in the fields of learning and course design, the first annual National Registry Summit in Nashville, TN, was a big success.
Based on feedback received after the Summit, there were some attendees that were new to their roles and were hoping for more detailed information regarding the Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Programs (Standards).
The majority of Summit attendees have been members of the Registry for some time, so to meet the needs of those looking for more information and a chance to ask specific questions in a more intimate setting, Jessica Luttrull, NASBA’s National Registry Manager, said NASBA plans to offer two pre-conference workshops at the 2013 National Registry Summit in Houston, TX.
“These are similar workshops, in terms of topics and content, that were held at previous CPE conferences,” said Luttrull. “They have been well attended, and are popular because of the smaller group size, which makes it easier to have more interaction and address individual questions.”
The first workshop, entitled “Registry 101,” will discuss sponsors’ responsibilities in relation to their Registry membership and provide basic information on the Standards. This workshop will focus on new/potential Registry sponsors, or those individuals that are new to their role as the main contact person for the Registry membership.
The second workshop will focus on the QAS transition. Geared toward QAS/self study sponsors, this workshop will provide additional details on the deficiencies noted during reviews, and help sponsors prepare for the QAS transition application.
The 2013 National Registry Summit will be held September 9th – 10th at the Hotel Sorella in Houston, TX. Registration will begin Monday afternoon, September 9th, and the meeting will kick off Tuesday morning, September 10th. Look for more information about the Summit in the coming months.
