Industry Forums

AANEM allows companies to offer educational (CME or non-CME) or product sessions at the annual meeting by sponsoring an Industry Forum. To sponsor a forum, interested companies must apply online, pay a $1,000 deposit, and agree to follow AANEM's forum rules. AANEM will review the proposal within 5 working days and provide an approval determination promptly.

If your company decides to provide a CME session at the forum, please be aware that AANEM does not offer or provide the CME credit. CME credit must be provided by an external provider. Rules pertaining to CME programs can be found under Rules and Regulations linked below.
