2022 Clock Hours

To Download the Clock Hour Form Yourself:

Head to the conference website on your desktop or laptop’s web browser and take the survey there. After you complete the survey for your pre-con or the conference, you’ll see the link for a downloadable and fillable PDF clock hour form. If you take the survey through the app on your mobile device, you will get a brief confirmation message but will not be able to view the clock hour link. In that case, read on.

To Have the Clock Hour Form Emailed to You

If you complete the necessary survey(s) through the conference app, we will follow up with an email that includes the fillable PDF clock hour form. This email will go out sometime in mid-July to allow everyone time to complete the surveys. If you need your clock hour forms earlier than that, please use the conference website to take your surveys.
