For CMIs: Instructions for Obtaining Credit for AMI and GNSI Meeting Events

To get CEUs recorded for the AMI and GNSI workshops or meeting sessions, CMIs will need to fill out and submit either the on line or PDF version of the Verification form on the AMI web site within 30 days after the meetings are over. You will need to fill out a separate form for each workshop and/or session you attend. The workshops and program sessions for both meetings have already been evaluated for CE credit, so you only need to submit the Verification form. If there are no CEUs listed for a particular event, that session has not been approved for credit.

There is nothing automatic about this process; if you don't send in a Verification form for the workshops or meeting sessions you attend, no CEUs will be recorded.

Pam Little, CMI
AMI CE committee chair
