These meeting attract 50-100 attendees and provide a great opportunity for members and nonmembers alike to learn about the important work NIEAPA is doing, earn CEU's, and get some networking in. Most meetings are from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Central Time. The business meeting takes place from 9:00 - 9:40 am and the professional development presentation takes the remainder of the time.

Attendees receive PDHs and CEUs for Social Workers, Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addictions Counselors, and Human Resource Professionals. You must attend the live event, in-person or virtual to receive credit.


Meetings are free of charge to current NIEAPA members and full-time students. The fee for non-members is $40 per meeting, $10 for members of other EAPA chapters, and $5 for retirees and unemployed professionals. NIEAPA Members may also bring one guest to any Chapter Meeting, provided they do not bring the same guest more than once within a calendar year.
