OSEA Membership, 

Due to the current state of events with the development of the COVID-19 and the CDC guidance to protect the wealth of our members and their families, the board decided to cancel the OSEA Spring Conference scheduled for April 14th. We are already looking ahead and planning our OSEA Fall Conference for September 2020 if circumstances permit. 

The board acknowledges that many of our members depend on this conference and the local chapter meetings to complete their continuing education requirements. Therefore, we are working on compiling a list of websites from different organizations and manufacturers that offer webinars that can provide PDHs for you. Below is a list of organizations that offer webinars. We will keep this list and update it often on our website oksea.org. 

NCSEA free webinars (recorded)
