INS 44th Annual Meeting: Boston 2015

INS Boston 2016: Continuing Education Program

Important Requirements for All Continuing Education
Participants (How to Obtain Your CE Credits):

There are three distinct steps involved in CE course participation, including 1) registering for a CE course, 2) attending the course and making sure your attendance is documented, and finally, 3) completing a post-activity evaluation for each course attended. Each of these three steps, which is each described in detail in the section immediately below, must be completed in order for course participants to obtain CE credit.

Requirement 1. Separate CE Course Registration

How to add Plenary Session CE Credit now that the meeting is over:

**Please remember that in order to add a plenary session after the meeting has ended, you must have submitted the attendance slip for that session in Boston. You will not be able to add the course if we do not have your attendance slip on file. If you would like to check on the status of your attendance slip before purchasing the CE option for a Plenary Session, please email us at

Payment Option #1: Download and complete this form. Submit the signed, completed form to INS by fax at (+1) 801-487-6270 or by secure email to

Payment Option #2: Call the INS Office at (+1) 801-487-0475. If we have your attendance slip on file, we will be happy to accept your payment information by phone. Our normal business hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 5 PM, U.S. Mountain Time.

Continuing education options are not included in the meeting's general registration fee. Please note that CE courses are only available to fully registered meeting attendees. The following two types of CE options may be added to general meeting registration:

CE Option #1. CE Workshops

All CE Workshops in Boston require advance registration. Also, to be eligible to receive CE credits, attendees must submit the mandatory attendance slip on-site and must also complete a post-session evaluation for each CE Workshop.

CE Workshops may be added online before the online registration system closes on January 27, or they may be added on-site at the INS Registration Desk in Boston from February 2 to February 6.

PLEASE NOTE: To be admitted to any CE Workshop, attendees must wear their INS badge (all badges are checked at the door).

CE Option #2. Plenary Session CE Credit

Optional Plenary Session CE Credit is also available. A separate registration and fee ARE REQUIRED to enroll in the optional CE component for plenary sessions. Also, to be eligible to receive CE credits, attendees must submit the mandatory attendance slip on-site and they must also complete a post-session evaluation for each plenary session.

PLEASE NOTE: INS Plenary Sessions are open to every registered attendee as part of their general meeting registration fee. Attendees do not need to pay a separate fee or submit an attendance slip for any plenary session unless they wish to enroll in the optional CE component for that session.

Plenary Session CE Credit may be added before, during, or after the meeting has ended. Please note that in order to add CE for a plenary session after the meeting has ended, we must have your attendance slip from that session on file. If we did not receive your attendance slip, you will not be able to add the course.

Requirement 2. Attendance Documentation

In order to obtain CE or CEU credits (and corresponding certificates) from the 44th Annual Meeting, you must submit a completed attendance slip for each CE session you attend in Boston, as well as for plenary sessions that you might want to add in the future**.

**For accreditation we must provide documentation of attendance for the duration of each CE session. In order to receive CE credit for any INS session, you must attend the ENTIRE session, and at the end of the course, you must submit the attendance slip that was offered by the volunteer proctor at the beginning of the session. This includes Plenary Sessions that you might want to add in the future.

Requirement 3. Post-Course Online Evaluation

In order to obtain CE credits (and certificates), you must also successfully complete a post-course evaluation on the INS website. Please note the online evaluation is not required for ASHA CEU participants, but ASHA participants must still register separately for CE courses and provide documentation of attendance as described in #1 and #2 above.

How To Complete the Online, Post-Course Evaluation:

To access CE evaluations for courses you attended, begin by visiting the INS website at, and then click on the link on the left side for “Annual Meeting CE” (or go directly by clicking here).

From the list that appears, select the course for which you wish to complete the evaluation, then enter the same email address that you used to register for the meeting. If your registration and attendance are confirmed by the system, the evaluation will appear.

Please note that a separate evaluation is required for each course, so you will need to return to this main page for each evaluation.

When you have finished inputting your answers, please make sure to click the “Download certificate” button at the bottom of the screen to save your answers and generate your certificate (INS cannot recover answers that are not appropriately saved). Your certificate will then download to your computer—it may open in another window, or save to your downloads folder, depending on your browser settings). 

Please contact the INS office at with any questions.
