    Default Event earning Merits?

    I attended the Kentucky PPA sponsored event PhotoPro Expo hosted by David Ziser in February. I wondered if that event qualifies for PPA merits. If so, is there something I need to do to insure those are credited to me?

    A Merit for attendance is only issued for attending the National Convention, unless the event organizer makes special arrangements with PPA for that event to be a merit class.

    If it is a merit class, the organizer will usually inform you of that in advance and ask for your PPA membership number so that the merit could be issued.
    The best way to gain for yourself is to give OF yourself.

    If you are certified it could potentially count as cont ed.

    Jeff, I am certified and understand that events can count as education credits but aren't a 1/1 for education merits. Is there somewhere that I can read about how that works, how I keep up with and report those? I was told a webinar over an hour counts as 1/4 education credit, does that apply the three day webinars that CreativeLive is hosting? Thanks for the help!
