ASRA is an ABA-approved provider and, as a service to ASRA members and participants, CME credits are reported to the ABA. Participants must include their correctly formatted ABA ID number (34567890) during the online evaluation and credit claim process available at the conclusion of the activity. Once the online evaluation and credit claim process is closed, certificates will be issued and credits reported to the ABA. After this time, participants may request their CME certificate by contacting asrameetings@asra.com, but ASRA will no longer report credits to the ABA, which will then be the individual participant’s responsibility.
