Teleconference Series

2nd Wednesday teleconference series - In-depth briefings on timely topics

 

The monthly ECFC Teleconference Series provide a unique and valuable opportunity for association members to receive in-depth briefings on important and timely topics by experts from ECFC’s Education Committee, Industry Professionals, ECFC’s Technical Advisory Committee and key decision-makers in government. Top experts work through difficult and delicate topics in one-hour sessions. Topics are appropriate to the month and many will elaborate and further discuss ECFC FLEX Reporter articles and answer questions. The sessions are designed to pass on up-to-the minute information as well as technical expertise. The hour-long teleconference starts each second Wednesday of the month at 1:00pm ET (12pm CT, 11am MT, 10am PT) except for the months of March and August.

All supporting documents and recordings will be emailed to participants.  This is a paid subscription and is open to members and non-members.  Teleconference registrants have the extra advantage of being able to listen to the audio recording of the teleconference after they have occurred.

Fees:

The ECFC 2018 Annual Teleconference Series features 10 teleconferences for a one-time, members-only fee of $1,400. Non-members may register for a fee of $3,000. By registering for these teleconferences, you will receive additional briefing materials for that month’s session and access to the teleconference audio recordings should you be unable to attend or want to refresh your memory at a later time in the year. It also comes with 10 CE units. Additional members from your organization can sign up for an additional $200 per member (or $500 for non-members). They get the same materials, access to audio and CE units as the first member.

Many ECFC members have multiple people who wish to listen to the call AND receive the 1 CE credit. ECFC offers a special discount for multiple participants listening from the same phone line (additional participants must be associated with an Annual Series Registrant). To subscribe to the Annual Teleconference Series as an additional participant and receive 1 CE credits, register each individual additional participant by registering here. You will receive the additional participant, members-only rate of only $200 ($500 for non-members). If you have many additional registrants you would like to enroll, email us at info@ecfc.org with the names of those you wish to register and a single, multiple registration invoice can be created and emailed to you.

Cancellation Policy: 

Cancellations of Annual Subscriptions will not be provided once the series has begun. Series cancellations must be received in writing prior to the February 2018 Teleconference and will be assessed a $50 service charge. Only those persons registered will receive ECFC CE units.

Not ready to purchase the Annual Series, but interested in individual sessions? 

We understand that some participants would prefer to select sessions on a monthly basis. For those organizations and individuals, we offer registration for single sessions. Individual sessions are available to ECFC members at a price of $140 per session and to non-members for $200.

Continuing Education (CE) Units:

Each monthly Teleconference session is worth 1 Continuing Education unit, applicable towards FCS, CFC/ACFC, or CFCI/ACFCI certification or recertification credit unless otherwise noted. For information on COBRA CE units, please contact ECFC as session topics determine these continuing education units. For verification purposes, ONLY registered participants will receive continuing education units for the 2018 ECFC Teleconferences. All additional participants must be registered individually in order to receive credit for CE units.

Looking for Additional Continuing Education? 

Did you know that if you missed a past Teleconference Session that you can still register to hear it “on-demand.” Check out the diversity and expertise that ECFC has offered this past year, and if you are looking for Continuing Education units towards your certification or re-certification, this is an excellent way to earn those CE units. Each Teleconference Session provides 1 CE unit.
