BIAC Annual Conference

2020 BIAC Annual professional conference 


register today

IMPORTANT UPDATE! As increased restrictions necesssary to protect all of our nation's citizens are put in place, and consistent with the guidelines of the CDC, BIAC has made the decision to provide the conference virtually, through taped webinars.  We are recording each of the nine workshops.  Unfortunately, the keynote speaker is unavailable.  However, because we are providing all of the recordings to all registrants, you will now be able to view all nine workshops, where as viewing it live would have limited you to four.  We anticipate that the recordings will be completed and available to all registrants by the end of the Month.  Registrants will receive instructions on how to access the webinars and how to complete the surveys in order to obtain CEU's/CME's.  The very good news is that most credentialing agencies have already given approval to increase the number of CEU's you can obtain by viewing all the webinars.  Because the process to record all the webinars takes time, we anticipate that registrants will receive the links to the webinars by March 31. 

View Updates on the Annual Conference dated March 24, 2020 - including important updates regarding CEUs and CMEs. 

Because the conference is being recorded, you can now register for the conference through April 15.  You will need to have viewed the workshops by April 30th.  If you have not yet registered, do so today!
