Symposium Information

What People are Saying about IE Symposia!


“The symposium was well organized and presenters were highly knowledgeable experts in their fields making it an incredible value.”


“The best CE I have attended in the US.”


“This was well worth my money and time I invested in coming to Minnesota. I appreciate the fact I could accrue 18 hours of CEUs in this timespan!  I would highly recommend this symposium to others!”  


In relation to IE continuing the Symposium tradition started by Eileen Richter over 30 years ago with the PDP Symposium: “I am so happy you guys kept the symposium going!  You are doing a great job and my team and myself look forward to it every year!”  


“WONDERFUL experience - from the speaker, the content, and the energy of the participants!”
