I attend this conference to earn my PICA discount before the end of the year. What should I do?

As we know that many of our registrants enjoy the perk of a PICA discount with their registration, we are excited to partner with PICA to offer a virtual Risk Management lecture on Friday, November 20, 2020. The lecture will be titled DVT: Little Things Matter! and will be presented by Roya Mirmiran, DPM. 

This lecture is included in your registration when you register for the 12th Annual Southeast National Conference taking place March 18 - 21, 2021.  A link to the virtual one-hour PICA Risk Management lecture will be provided to all March 2021 Southeast National Conference registrants one week prior to the lecture date. Participants who attend the November Risk Management lecture and choose to cancel their March 2021 registration will be charged a $150 cancellation fee at the time of cancellation.
