What is a Professional Learning Contact Hour?
In order to remain a certified middle level educator, it is critical to continue learning and growing through outstanding professional development opportunities—and to receive credit for those learning experiences. By participating in the AMLE Annual Conference for Middle Level Education, you can earn Contact Hours to maintain your teaching and administration certification. Please check with your school system and/or state certification agency to make sure they accept contact hours from AMLE2017.

How do I earn Professional Learning Contact Hours?
We track sessions you attended with Contact Hour codes. At the end of each session the presenter should inform attendees of the Contact Hour code for their session. This code is a combination of two letters followed by two numbers (i.e., HK-28). Write the code in the appropriate space provided on the Contact Hour card, found in the program book. Complete the Personal Information and return the card to the conference registration desk before 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 8, 2017. If you forget to return the card, it can be mailed no later than December 9, 2017 to:
