Host a Forum

The American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) offers companies the opportunity to provide educational (CME or nonCME) or product information sessions at the AANEM Annual Meeting by sponsoring an Industry Forum (Forum). Companies interested in hosting a Forum must submit the online application, pay a $1,000 deposit, and agree to adhere to AANEM’s rules governing Forums. The AANEM will review the Forum proposal within five (5) working days of receipt and grant an approval determination within that timeframe.

If your company chooses to offer a CME session, please note that AANEM does not provide CME credit for Forums. CME must be offered by an outside provider. Rules specific to CME programs are included below under Rules and Regulations.
