    The invitation for you to offer the course at CEwire2017 was extended. I assume for personal reasons you could not accept. Here is hoping you will be available for CEwire2018.

    How about this private message sent to you on Odwire.org which should have your correct address? This is the Private message.

    No response to my two e mails

      Hi Lloyd,

      I sent out the two e mails below to you without acknowledgement. if you prefer not giving the general medical courses, we have to search for another presenter.

      Please let me know.

      Thanks.

      Paul

      Here are the two e mails in the event they were overlooked...

      Hi Lloyd,

      I never received an acceptance or rejection to my communication below.

      Adam is sending out general invitations shortly. We would love to have you share your general medical expertise.

      Thanks.

      Paul

      Hi Lloyd,

      I'm reaching out to you ahead of CEwire2017 speaker invitation mailing.

      Are you interested in offering 2 hours on General Medical issues of interest to OD? You may do two 50 minute sessions or a two hour session with no break.

      I believe you said you offer this course to optometry students at UHCO.

      We'll assist you in making the recording go smoothly.You must be available on 1/28 or 1/29 during your scheduled presentation to answer participants questions in real time.

      Your course will be on demand through 5/1/17. You cannot present it at other C/E except to optometry students.

      We are offering a lecture fee of $750 per hour.

      Please respond to this communication with acceptance or regets ASAP. If you say yes we require course title and outline by 10/10/16.

      Thanks.

      Paul

      Our credibility on ODwire.org and CEwire2017 is essential if we want to remain in operation. Your e mail never bounced. The Private Message sent on September 30,2016 has the e mail address that is your user name. How it never reached you will remain a mystery.

      In any event we look forward to your participation in 2018.

    Hi Jeanne,
    You pick and choose which course you want to take; some people only take a few, others run the whole board and take everything! Totally up to you, you have until May 1 to complete the courses.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    I am not sure if all our 36 credits will be honored from the CE 2017 lectures provided during the online conference

    This refers to NY State

    I have a brother that is very good at lecturing. He was also nice enough to serve on our board when we slipped him in with out the OMDs knowing who he was. Different last name from mine. He loved it.

    only the ones that you take live will be, so technically you are correct since you cannot take 36 live credits during cewire 2017

    Correct. Courses run from 11am ET/ 8am PT - 6:30PM ET/ 3:30PM PT.

    That is the challenge of being live for a national audience. Vendor booths will open early and remain late so there is no competition with courses.

    There will also be a single half hour break to relax get refreshments and also visit vendors.
