ANNOUNCEMENT – INTRODUCING THE NEW KYASLA CEU EVENT SERIES

Need CEU’s??? No problem! KyASLA is proud to present our new, bi-monthly CEU Event Series, brought to you by our generous sponsors. The goal is to provide our membership with an advance schedule of KyASLA sanctioned events, occurring on a regular basis with each event Board Approved for 1 CEU and always with lunch provided.

How do you find out about these upcoming opportunities? READ THE NEWSLETTER! That’s right; don’t just send it to your junk mail – open it and look for the list of upcoming events. Need more options? We have those too. We’ll also send scheduled updates and a reminder for each event to be sure no one misses out on a free lunch (and a CEU of course). And, if e-mail doesn’t cover it, check the website regularly @ www.kyasla.org for updates, including additional CEU Events not a part of this series, or “like” us on facebook – we’ll be posting there too!
