***PSA as of 1/19/2021***
We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances concerning the expanding resurgence of the nationwide COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the CE meeting schedule for 13-14 February 2021 is being changed to minimize attendee (pandemic) risk exposure to the extent practical.
 Accordingly 6 ABO CE hours will be offered onsite Saturday the 13th of February and additionally the GA Law class will be offered for a total of 7 CECs for that day. There will be no Sunday (14 Feb.) NCLE classes provided for the aforementioned stated reason. 
To compensate for the onsite Sunday hours not being offered onsite, OAG is providing every registered attendees 3 individual coupon codes that will allow access to the OAG website. We  recommend attendees take advantage of the 3 NCLE CE credits at no charge to each registered and verified Valdosta attendee. 
The coupon codes at issue are valid until the 31st of March 2021, and there will be no exemptions or exceptions to that date. The online completion of the 3 NCLE courses provided for, will yield a total of 10 CE hours for the Valdosta event. The 3 separate coupon codes will be available in each individual information folder that is routinely provided at OAG CE meetings. No further action will be required on the attendees part except to follow the simple instructions that will be provided on the OAG website to go online and register accordingly. In light of the resurging pandemic crisis throughout the country, the OAG leadership team has determined the approach taken is the most responsible course of action to take for the benefit and welfare of our much valued OAG members and non member attendees alike.
