2020 AETA-CETA/ACTE Joint Annual Virtual Convention

We would like to thank you for your participation in the 2020 AETA and CETA/ACTE Joint Annual Virtual Convention. Although we all would have preferred to visit and participate in person this fall in Madison, Wisconsin, we feel that this conference highlighted the perseverance and flexibility typical of our profession. The convention committee succeeded in making the best of the circumstances. We hope you gained some benefit from the program that was presented. We remind you to provide your feedback so that we can deliver the content and experience that you are looking for in the future to the best of our abilities.

Thank you,

Matthew Dorshorst, AETA president

Luc Besner, CETA/ACTE president

Convention Session Information

The convention will feature two types of sessions: keynote addresses and prerecorded sessions.

Keynote addresses will be live sessions via Zoom, where participants will see the content and interact with the speakers in real time. Once the keynote addresses have concluded, a link to the content will be posted.

Prerecorded sessions will be made available via a link on the AETA convention page at 12:01 am (CDT) on Tuesday, October 6. During the times on the schedule, speakers will be available to chat via Zoom about their presentations and answer any questions you may have.

All sessions will have a quiz that participants must participate in and pass with a score of at least 70% to receive continuing education (CE) credits (see below).

Please note that speakers will only be available for discussion during their scheduled time. Participants who register before October 6th can view sessions and take the accompanying RACE quizzes until December 31st.

You must register before October 6th to get access to the meeting content.

Continuing Education

The scientific program of the 2020 AETA and CETA/ACTE Joint Virtual Convention has been approved for 14 CE hours from RACE.

Please note that due to the nature of the virtual annual meeting, participants will earn CE credits per session that they view and quiz (you must pass by answering at least 70% of the questions correctly). A quiz link will be available on the AETA convention page for each session.

NOTE: If all sessions are viewed and each quiz is passed with at least a 70% score, the total number of CE hours/credits obtained would be (pending RACE approval):

  • 14 for AETA members (including the AETA certification session)
  • 12 for CETA/ACTE members

For AETA and CETA/ACTE Certification purposes, the 2020 AETA & CETA/ACTE Joint Virtual Convention will equal 10 CE credits.

Recordings are no longer available. Thank you for attending.
