OSS members:
Coming in person:

Joining Online:

  • We have your information so there is no need to RSVP. We will mark your attendance when you join the meeting. Just be sure your FIRST and LAST name is used as your name when you join the meeting, otherwise, we will not know it is you and we cannot mark you as attended.
  • You will not be marked as attended if you are not present in the first 15 minutes of the presentation.

Non-OSS member: Join us! It’s easy. You are welcome to attend our meetings, but unless you pay the annual dues you will not receive a CME and you cannot eat the meals we provide. Of course, you can bring your own and participate, but we really encourage you to become a member and contribute to Oklahoma sonographers’ continuing education growth and your own.
