Welcome Back to the WAEPS Annual Meeting! Join your colleagues in person for another outstanding program with tracks specifically designed for ophthalmologists, their medical personnel, practice managers and administrative staff. This is an in person meeting only this year, no virtual option is available.

How do I get my CME from the Annual Meeting?

For Physicians: after you have filled out the attendee survey found here, your name will be submitted in April to the University of Washington CME department. They will process all the attendee names and send you an email with a link. This link will be your CME certificate. If you have not received an email from the UW CME Dept. by May 2022 please contact WAEPS for assistance. 

 

For Technicians: please fill out the attendee survey found here. Your name will be submitted to JCAHPO in April for processing. Once JCAHPO has approved your CE credits they will contact WAEPS. You will receive an email from WAEPS in late April with your CE certificate. Please keep a copy of your 2022 CE JCAHPO certificate because neither WAEPS nor JCAHPO will keep copies. If you have not received your certificate by May please contact the WAEPS office.

 

Coding Meeting: Please fill out the AAO survey here. You must complete it within 30 days of the Codequest Meeting on March 10, 2022. After you have answered a few evaluation questions you will be able to claim your CME by downloading the certificate. Please keep a copy of your 2022 certificate because neither WAEPS nor AAO will keep copies. If you need assistance with you CME certificate or have questions about the survey please contact Arlynn Moraga at [email protected]

Industry Exhibitor Participation:

Exhibit registrations for the March 9-10, 2023 Exhibit Hall will open in December 2022.

New in 2023: WAEPS will no longer be filling out and submitting grant requests for companies that use an online donation exhibitor portal. This is the responsibility of the vendor representative to fill out their company's grant request portal with all the proper information. WAEPS is happy to provide requested Annual Meeting exhibitor documentation to assist you in filling out your company's online funds request portal. Do not send the WAEPS staff a link to your company's exhibitor online funds request, these emails will not be opened.

Each exhibitor MUST fill out the WAEPS Exhibitor Registration form (coming in Dec. 2022) and submit it to reserve their exhibit booth space. You can do this via the online Exhibitor Registration link or by submitting a paper registration form to the WAEPS Exhibitor Coordinator ([email protected])
