      We are continuing our efforts to "Go Green" with the option to register. You are able to register online at http://www.psychiatryalaska.org. We have chosen an electronic preference to receive the conference educational materials in the form of a flash drive. We will not be handing out the PowerPoint presentation; it will be passed out in flash drive format. This will make it easier for attendees to have all the documents that will be presented at the training. You may make copies for yourself as needed. Laptops will not be supplied by the association, please make sure if you choose this option to bring your personal laptops and power/extension cords.

Please forward this invitation to your colleagues!

For any questions or concerns please feel free to reply to this email.  We look forward to seeing you there!
