CLE Credit

NBAA will provide registered attendees who have signed in and out with an emailed attendance confirmation letter following completion of the Tax, Regulatory & Risk Management Conference. Attendees could be eligible for a maximum of 14 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) for full attendance.

NBAA does not submit this program for approval to any state bar or CLE provider. Attendees seeking CLE credit must submit their own application using information from this event page.

The attendance confirmation letter may be used as part of your individual application to your state bar for CLE credit. The number of CLE credits listed is the maximum allowable credits attendees can request from their state CLE provider, based on attendance for the full session.
