The Academy encourages concepts for new programs proposed by the membership. A core goal of Academy programs is providing actionable information and solutions the attendees can both understand and implement after the program. Checklists, forms and other usable templates are encouraged.
Programs are approved at a meeting of Academy Officers and are subject to approval of the Board of Trustees. Many programs will go through the Curriculum Committee for further review and refinement before being sent to the Academy officers for a vote. Email your ideas to This email address is being protected from spambots.

When making a program proposal, be as specific as possible about the scope and format of the potential program, suggestions for potential presenters, and the need for a planning committee.  

The following links will transport you to all the documents and forms required to coordinate, develop and present a successful MCLE program. Where a form requires information be inserted, you may type the information into the form directly on your computer. You may save the form, email the completed forn, and print out the completed form if you so desire.
