2021 ALATA CSMM in Gulf Shores CEUs:

Everyone who attended the CSMM in person or virtually would have gotten an email with links to the recordings and surveys to complete to get their CEU Certificates. These emails go to the email that was used in the registration process. Some of these emails were lost in “junk” folders or quarantined by institutional firewalls. If you did not receive this email on June 8th or it’s follow-up on July 26th, please contact me directly at president@alathletictrainers.org. I will then forward you to the appropriate individuals to help get you your CEU certificates.
