Many states and regions are affiliated with NSH and have state societies that have annual meetings with one or two days of seminars and workshops that are reasonably priced and hopefully close enough to allow attendance.  The National Society for Histotechnology has a meeting at a specified location every year that is 5 days long and covers clinical, veterinary, research and other topics in management.  The meetings are listed on the NSH.org website if you are interested in looking at all available meetings for most states and regions.  These are great educational opportunities for everyone whether you are a registered HT/HTL/student or researcher with special interests.

How do you gain credits? Do you get them for attending seminars or do you have to take actual courses?
Are these the CME's I always see noted for lectures? I never knew what those were for.
