Annual Meeting

Join us for our 18th Annual ACMA Maryland Chapter Case Management and Transitions of Care Conference 

Public health is our highest priority and we understand how critical you are to your organizations
 and the communities you serve. We are doing things a little differently this year in order to address the needs of everyone who attend our conference.  

We're excited to bring the 18th Annual ACMA Maryland Chapter Conference to you virtually this year, with LIVE sessions taking place on September 12, 2020 for all attendees which includes the opportunity to access the same educational content, earn CE credit, learn about the latest innovations in case management from our vendor community partners and share knowledge with your peers with networking capabilities from your home. 

If you join us during the LIVE conference on September 12th, you will earn 5.0 CE’s BUT you still have the opportunity to earn 3.0 more CE’s because you can access the other breakout sessions that you didn’t choose on the LIVE conference day up to 60 days after the live conference!  So 8 CE credits in all!!   

Another option: The sessions will be recorded and available to you via our virtual conference platform for 60 days after the September 12th conference for full 8 CE credits. 

****Note: Virtual LIVE sessions are a requirement for Social Work CE’s in Maryland.  

Those who have already registered, will be automatically transferred to this virtual conference.

Thank you for continuing to support the case management profession and we look forward to creating a new experience for our attendees.
