OSC 2021 Virtual Conference

8:00 AM May 7 - 5:00 PM May 8, 2021

The 2021 OSC ANNUAL CONFERENCE will take place on Friday May 7 to Saturday May 8 2021, with an pre-conference workshop offered on Thursday May 6.

NOTE: This conference will be held VIRTUALLY.

This year we will host two pre-conference workshops on Thursday May 6th. If you elect to attend the pre-conference workshop you could potentially receive up to 36 continuing education credits. With two workshops and two tracks of speakers throughout May 7th and 8th, the OSC is giving you access to recordings for all presentations.

This means viewing the workshop and two full days of lectures will give you 18 category A credits. After the conference we will give you access to all the presentations so you can view them at your leisure to gain the 18 Category B credits. Without attending the pre-conference workshops you would receive 14 Category A and 14 Category B credits for a total of 28.
