    CEUs for Attendance at the Working Together Conference on the Way

    New this year, everyone who attended classes at the Working Together conference had their name badge scanned for attendance verification. In previous years, a verification stamp was required on the ticket used to enter the class. The addition of a bar code on the name badge this year allowed for participants to be quickly scanned as they exited the session.

    Attendees will be receiving an email during the week of February 8-12, 2016 that contains a link for them to retrieve their CEUs. This email message will be sent to the email address used when registering for the conference. Be sure that your current, valid, email is on file. Members can update their Wisconsin EMS Association account at anytime right here. The CEU records will remain available following the email notification.

    Participants who have not yet completed their conference evaluations can still do that by using the conference app. Completing evaluations for each of the sessions you attended and for the general conference are encouraged. Your thoughts and comments help the speakers, staff and committee to plan future talks and events. If you’ve not installed the app, you can also complete the general conference evaluation when obtaining your CEU information.

    Watch for your CEU email notification during the week of February 8.

  • 30th Working Together Conference & Exposition Comes to a Close

    After many months of planning and anticipation, the 30th Working Together Emergency Services Midwest Conference & Exposition at the Wisconsin Center in Downtown, Milwaukee is now over. Thousands of participants took part in one or more of the 6 total days of the event. The most vendors in conference history lined the expo hall with nearly 150 companies. Everyone has since returned home, armed with the very latest in emergency services information.

    The first sets of photos from the conference have been available on the Working Together conference app, along with our Facebook page since the start of the conference. Watch for more information, including pictures and video clips coming soon.

    Participants are encouraged to complete their conference evaluations, both for each session they attended as well as the general conference eval. Electronic evaluations, through the conference app, are still available. If you are not able to use the app, you’ll be able to complete the general evaluation when obtaining your CEUs. Continuing educational credit records will be emailed to all participants shortly.

    A sincere thank you to everyone who participated in the 30th conference. Check back for detailed coverage. It’s on the way soon!
