Frequently Asked Questions

Will the 2022 Conference be virtual or in-person?

The 2022 Institute will be a hybrid event. There will be both in-person and virtual/online opportunities. It is anticipated that On-Demand viewing will also be available after the close of the event. Details are still being developed.

Do you have scholarship assistance in order to attend?

Yes! We understand the financial constraints for so many rural service providers. We currently work with multiple sponsors and donors to provide financial relief from registration fees. A scholarship application, including a letter of support from your employer are required. More details can be found on the scholarship application page.

How many CEU's can I earn during the Institute? Are there any other types of credits available?

2022 Information is underdevelopment. This response applies to the 2021 event:

If an attendee participates in all standard Institute sessions and keynotes in real-time only, the 2021 Virtual Institute will provide 2.0 CEU/20 hours. Additional hours may be earned for On-Demand viewing of recorded sessions. There will be over 80 instructional hours. While it may vary by agency, 1 CEU = 10 instructional hours.

CRC's (Certified Rehabilitation Counselor CEUS) can also be earned and will be provided by the UW-Stout Vocational Rehabilitation Institute.

Can I submit a presentation proposal?

Proposals are both solicited and invited on an annual basis. If an open call is used, information will be posted here about how to submit materials for consideration.

What is your cancellation and substitution policy?

A $30 cancellation fee will be assessed for any cancelled orders through May 31. No refunds are available after May 31. Substitutions can occur at anytime up until the start of the event at no charge. Note than scholarship awards are not transferrable and do not apply for substitutions.
