Events are listed on the calendar. You can search by date or topic. You can also change the view from Month to List or Day. Please remember only interactive webinars can be counted for AT, however all eight hours of AT required for certification can be online during this crisis.
The state offers an online calendar of possible AT events. We will try to keep a parallel calendar of chapter approved AT, but if you find one on the state calendar that is not on this website, please email AT@efctmn.org for approval.
AT committee: Rita Lokie, Jody Springer, Robert McLaughlin, and Rob Roy. To contact the committee email AT@efctmn.org.
To request approval for AT complete this form. Please give us two weeks advance notice for your AT request to be approved, published on website and added to PYW. This provides members with plenty of time to plan their AT attendance.
