The NCSC Annual Conference is a great opportunity to obtain up to 10 Continuing Education (CE) Credits at a competitive price. These credits can be applied to the ASCP’s Certificate Maintenance Program. This year’s conference will grow on the success of 2015 and 2016. The conference will feature morphological lectures, molecular methods, a panel composed of industry experts to discuss the paradigm shifts in cervical cancer screening, and offer interactive opportunities that will test your cytology knowledge. The Friday evening reception provides a great networking opportunity with colleagues and vendors. The Saturday lunch will allow NCSC members to provide feedback in future topics and meeting locations. We value your feedback in planning future meetings.

Printable registration forms are available here and can be mailed to the address listed. The registration deadline is January 30, 2017—registrations received after this date will be subject to a $15 late fee and may not be guaranteed a spot at the reception and/or luncheon.
