CEU awarded Chapter Meetings and Events, Review Classes, Networking, and Professional support to members.
2012: Our Chapter organizes 6 Chapter meetings, 6 proctored examinations, 5 review classes, and an Annual One Day Conference in August each year. Our One Day Conference is a local affair with national flair; like a day at National conference close to home. We have also partnered with the Southern Ohio Coding Round-table to offer CEU's for their educational events and allow for additional CEU opportunities for those Columbus Chapter members that wish to travel.
