This full-day seminar held in conjunction with the AAA Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV, is the ideal forum to assist you in planning for your accreditation or re-accreditation using the CAAS Gold Standards. It will provide a detailed overview of the application process and clearly define what can be expected throughout. Faculty will address the benefits and value of accreditation and identify ways in which you can increase operational and clinical performance, reduce risk and liability, and maximize your market potential as a result. The version 3.0 standards will be explained in detail, and the new paperless submission process will be clearly explained. The interactive format provides an opportunity to share ideas and best practices and receive expert answers to all your most important accreditation questions. Course books and materials are provided as part of the registration fee.

Registration fees are $425.00 for a single registration or $375.00 each for multiple registrations from the same company. Registration fee includes course materials (CAAS standards and application), continental breakfast, and coffee breaks. Lunch is on your own. In addition, attendees will also recieve free bonus materials, including: sample documents, the CAAS Standards Guide (a $25 value), the CAAS Application Package (a $100 value) and access to our online CAAS Accreditation Webinar series (a $225 value), so you can review program materials after the seminar, and share your learning experience with your staff. To assist CAAS in planning and preparation, please register by November 12, 2012. Prompt registration is encouraged as class size will be limited. Fill out the Seminar Registration Form.
