What Do You Need To Know To Be Compliant with Perkins V?

Unfortunately, in light of the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, Brustein & Manasevit, PLLC believes it is in the best interest of our clients' and attendees' health and well-being to cancel our May 11 pre-sessions at NACTEI's Annual Conference in Nashville, TN. Instead, we will be offering the same two pre-sessions through virtual trainings on May 11 & 12, 2020.

The fee is $250 per session, or a total of $400 for both.
