A number of states don’t require CEUs, and some states do not preapprove courses for approval, noted Thomas A. Parmalee, the conference coordinator. “The Business Plan Conference is always a huge draw for operators who want to improve their businesses and better serve their families,” Parmalee said. “CEUs typically are not the main impetus for attending, but we try to provide them whenever possible as another benefit for attendees.”
