SED MINI-CSM EVENT
SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2018

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the Sixth Annual Southeast District Mini-CSM conference!

The Southeast District (SED) Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) is modeled after the APTA CSM and is designed to be an affordable and valuable learning opportunity where you can see old friends, make new ones, learn, get inspired, earn CEUs, network, and visit our exhibit hall. 

We have added additional programming this year, for a total of six morning and afternoon sessions... Six tracks of education to help us celebrate our Sixth Anniversary!

We have been able to keep our registration fees low as the discounted CEUs are a member benefit provided by the Southeast District! Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association (PPTA) to help in their mission for serving the physical therapy profession. Non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Attendees will be able to sign-up on site for APTA/PPTA membership and immediately receive the discounted registration rate. 

This event is open to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants and students studying to become physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. CEUs are approved for both PA and will be applied for approval for Delaware.
