For ALL MAATA 2016 Symposium Attendees

I would like to thank everyone for your attendance at the 2016 MAATA Annual Symposium and Business Meeting.  

As I explained during the conference, you must complete the quiz and surveys to receive your EBP certificates as well as your general attendance certificate.  You may use the QR code on the back of your conference name badge or the URL included in your conference materials to access these documents.


Please note that we have experienced some trouble with distributing the certificates and we are working to resolve those issues.   So, I ask for your patience as we work through it.  


As a reminder, you should submit everything by June 6, 2016.   I will be working with the porgram until all certificates have been sent out.


Thank you for your patience and continued support!
