In keeping with the FEA’s commitment to bring its members quality education and
information needed by business owners on the ever-changing exchange industry, the
CES® Certification Council has developed an Education Series featuring one hour
webinars approved for CES® credit hours.

The 2009 Education Series features webinars covering a wide range of topics from
Business Ethics for QIs to State Regulatory Issues to the latest on related party
transactions. If you missed any of the recent conferences, this is your chance to
participate in the session with the same presenter! All participants will receive a copy of
the PowerPoint presentation as well as any prepared handouts. There will also be
Question & Answer session at the end of each webinar.

Business owners and managers, whether you register to participate in these webinars
yourself or you plan to have everyone participate as a group, these webinars give you
an excellent opportunity to provide your exchange team with continuing education and
training. If participating as a group, perhaps you can enjoy breakfast or lunch together
and after the webinar spend time discussing the information presented and how it
impacts your business.

These webinars are not a revenue raiser for the FEA. Instead the FEA is only charging
enough to cover their expenses for the webinar and every effort was made to keep the
cost as low as possible to make these webinars affordable for everyone. Education is
critical to the long-term success of our industry. The cost per credit hour is just

David Gorenberg, CES®, FEA President, has unfortunately needed to postpone the FEA
Update webinar originally scheduled for Friday, October 16th. This free webinar will be
available to all members of FEA. It also qualifies for one hour of CES® credit hours.
Watch your mailbox for a separate invitation to this important webinar. This is a great
way to catch up on what is happening with the FEA!

Important information for CES® Designees:
    Each webinar is pre-approved for one (1) CES® credit hour.
    If you are seeking CES® credit hours, you must register and participate
       individually. Multiple Designees in one office must register separately to receive
       the credit hour.
    A representative of the CES® Council will be present on each webinar and will
       track the attendance of participants. The roster of attendees will be provided to
       FEA staff so the credit hour can be logged in the records of the individual
       You are not eligible to receive credit for a session you previously attended at an
        FEA Conference or webinar.
       For Designees with a renewal period ending 12/31/09, the CES® Certification
        Council has expanded the number of credit hours available through web-based
        education, including webinars. This allows anyone whose twenty (20) hours of
        continuing education to be completed by the end of the current calendar to
        obtain all twenty (20) hours through webinars. So if you have not started
        earning your credit hours, it is not too late. Note that no extensions will be
        granted to those who do not complete their twenty hours by the end of the year.
       Please keep in mind that those with a renewal period ending 12/31/09 are
        required to obtain at least one (1) hour of Ethics education and those with a
        renewal period ending 12/31/10 are required to obtain two (2) hours of Ethics
        education by the end of the renewal period.
