MAPE will  offer 2 opportunities each year for electrologists to earn CEUs.  We will host or co-host an early spring Seminar where electrologists will be able to earn at least 10 hours of continuing education and a fall CEU Event where electrologists will be able to earn at least 2 hours of continuing eduction. MAPE will hold general membership meetings at each of these events.  This new format is due to a variety of reasons, including the desire of members to be able to earn the bulk of their CEUs in one weekend, we have less volunteers to put these events together and also due to the fact that these events take many hours to put together and the costs for individual events continues to rise.

2018 MAPE joint seminar with PSE in Hershey Park, PA March 15-17, 2018 (Thursday through Saturday).  We will offer 1.2 CEUs of Approved lectures (12 hours of continuing education).

Room Rates are $189.00 per night.  Attendees can call 855-729-3108 and ask for the room block for the Maryland Association of Professional Electrologists at the Hershey Lodge, March 15-18, 2018.  Or, go to the following link to reserve your room:
