By attending the MAMFT Conference every year, LMFTs can obtain all the CE hours necessary for license renewal! The Mississippi Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) has been approved by the Mississippi Board of Examiners for Social Workers and Marriage and Family Therapists (MSBOE) and the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) as an Approved Continuing Education Provider. The 2024 conference will offer 14 CE hours.

Special instructions for those renewing in 2023 and beyond: The MSBOE has announced that the definition for face-to-face continuing education now includes live webinars, such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. This means that if you choose to attend the conference virtually you will be able to count those hours as regular face-to-face hours for renewal.
