It’s time to submit your hours to get credit for Ma’alot Limmud, our continuing education recognition program. All formal learning you have done that is above and beyond what is needed or required for your day to day work and is done in Chevrutah, as part of a class, on-line learning, or a lesson is eligible to be counted. (For specific questions please contact Sharon Kohn, firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-221-1406.) See below for the PDF and Word version of the form.
The ACC will recognize its members who engage in continuing study. You will get credit for what you are already doing by simply letting us know!
Any study not occurring in the normal preparation for our daily work. For example: workshops, seminars, ACC conventions and CCPD offerings, music lessons, coachings, Chevrutah study, retreats and scholarly lectures, college courses and course work leading to accreditation. Questions? Ask! Contact Sharon Kohn: email@example.com or 913-663-4050.
