Fall 2020 Update: Interactive LIVE Virtual Conference Options
The October Bar Harbor fall conference is offered as an Interactive LIVE Virtual Conference and presented in the ZOOM platform. An unlimited number of attendees can participate in a hotel room, home, or anywhere!
Our two Sedona November conferences remain as scheduled at the Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock. The Sedona conferences will also be streamed LIVE to accommodate those who prefer to participate virtually in their hotel room (if applicable) at home, or anywhere they choose! Should it be impossible to hold the program at the resort, all registered participants will be notified by phone.
Extra safety measures will be taken for those gathering in a conference room. The recommended 6-foot social distancing will be in place and the meeting room will be limited to 50 attendees. Wearing face masks will be required at the conference. Hand sanitizer and bottled water daily will be provided by Encore. Food stations will have protective shields, and food will be served to each attendee.

"I am a first-time attendee. I think this was one of the most relevant conferences I’ve attended. I went to a CPC Review Course and loved the new info as well as basic, which I hadn’t visited in years! So pertinent in tweaking my everyday practice. The conference was at the onset of COVID. Our individual tables spaced nicely apart was a great idea. I will definitely be attending another. - Naples CPC Exam Review 2020, Naples, FL "
