    At the ACRM Annual Conference, you can earn up to 44.25 Continuing Education Credits in 15 difference disciplines—that’s more than any other conference in the world. And the cost per CME hour could be as low as $10.50, versus the industry average of $40 per hour.  AND, ACRM’s discounted hotel rates can save members as much as 30% to 40% per night over regular market rates.
