All applications (proposals) must undergo the standard CME application process. This means the office reviews the initial submission to prepare it for the committee to review, then the Chicago Committee on CME reviews the proposal, then the Executive Committee on CME reviews the proposal.
Applications should be submitted 60-90 before the activity takes place. This ensures enough time to process the paperwork and to approve it before the activity takes place.
If you would like to increase your advertising window, we recommend submitting 4-6 months before activity takes place.
