What are Continuing Education Credits?

Many executives have professional certifications they need to maintain by earning a certain number of credits per year. The Conference Board offers several types of credits for conferences, seminars, webcasts, council meetings, and academies to enable our members to easily fulfill their continuing education requirements while participating in our programs.

Which Conference Board programs offer credits?

You can see a full listing of our upcoming programs and which credits are offered, from The Conference Board website by selecting “I Want To” … “Earn Continuing Education Credits” in the navigation menu.

Programs are selected based upon the topics covered and the requirements of the individual credential providers.

How can I earn credits?

Conferences, Seminars, and other In-Person Events:
Make sure to sign-in each day of the event on the credit sign-in sheets.  You will receive a verification or certificate via email within 1-3 weeks.

Live Webcasts:
You must be logged in for the entire program, and enter your full name, email address, and credit type needed into the credit request box on-screen. For some credit types, additional attendance verification is needed: You may also need to respond to attendance verification polls throughout the webcast. You will receive your certificate via email within 1-3 weeks. On-demand webcasts (recordings) are not eligible for credit.  You must attend the live session.

I am watching a live webcast with a group. Can I request credits for multiple people?

Yes, simply enter each person’s full name, email address, and credit type needed into the credit request box on-screen.

How will I receive my credits?

You will receive an email verification or certificate within 1-3 weeks of the program. You can then claim credit with your credential provider.

What if I need another type of credits not offered?

We can provide you with proof-of-attendance as well as the detailed program agenda so that you may apply for credit directly with your credential provider. (Check your recertification rules for program requirements.)

How can I obtain a general proof of attendance?
