Application Approval Process Heading link
Applications should be submitted 60-90 days before the activity takes place (new activity or renewal). This ensures enough time to process the paperwork and to approve it before the activity takes place.
All applications (proposals) must undergo the standard CME application process. This means the CME Coordinator reviews the initial submission to prepare it for the committee to review, then the Peoria Committee on CME reviews the proposal, then the Executive Committee on CME reviews the proposal. If any revisions are needed at any stage of this process, communication will be made back to the submitting parties accordingly prior to additional review and approval.
