Continuing Education:

Once again we will be using the CEUhelper app to collect and process CEUs. If you have not been to an event where CEUhelper was used, you will need to sign up for a CEUhelper account to use the app. Please follow the instructions at this link: If you have used CEUhelper in the past, no additional steps are needed to use it again at this year's CoFABA event.

The conference will end with a networking social at Burger U starting right after the final presentation ends. This will give the attendees an opportunity to speak with all of you and enjoy some time to interact in a casual atmosphere. You can walk from the Alumni Fairwinds Center to Burger U across the street if you would like to participate in this event.
