SAVE International is introducing “Interactive Continuing Education” Sessions to the 2020 Value Summit

The purpose is to provide our membership with hands on skills, training and additional experience in the Core Competencies. These Interactive Continuing Education Sessions will be held as a track or tracks during the Summit. These sessions are to be 1-hour to 2-hours in duration and must address one of the Core Competencies.

This submission is for short (1 to 2 hour) Interactive Continuing Education Sessions to be run during the main Summit tracks. These sessions are different from the pre- and post-Summit training sessions and there is no instructor reimbursement associated with these sessions.
When submitting your proposal to provide an Interactive Continuing Education Session, you must provide an outline for your session as well as a sample of the course material. Please provide a brief abstract of your Interactive Continuing Education Session as well.
