  • Additionally, the BCPO, in an effort to keep the CPO credential relevant in the changing world of virtual education, has lifted the limit on the number of recorded or online modules that count as CEUs. With proper documentation, up to 100% of CEUs required for re-certification or presented as substitute hours for CPO eligibility can come from non-live courses. Therefore, you may get your CEUs from conference recordings and attend the concurrent session that you desire.

10. What should I wear? 

  • The recommended conference attire is business casual.Because convention facilities can be cool, do remember to bring a sweater or light jacket. \
  • Some conference attendees choose to wear more dressy party attire for the President’s Reception.  Because we will be in Ft. Worth, western attire is suggested for NAPO2019’s Reception!
  • Remember to bring your industry “bling” such as CPO pin or Golden Circle pin. Also, please keep in mind that NAPO has a fragrance-free policy. 
  • Fragrance-Free Policy: A fragrance-free environment helps create a safe and healthy environment for all guests. Fragrances from personal care products such as cologne, perfume, aftershave lotions, deodorants, scented lotions, fragranced hair products and/or similar products have been associated with adversely affecting a person’s health including headaches, upper respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, and difficulty with concentration. People with allergies and asthma report that certain odors, even in small amounts, can cause asthma symptoms. Because of these adverse effects, fragranced products of any kind are not to be worn during NAPO2019.
