I am fairly new member to the AAPC and I have a question regarding attending my local chapter meeting. Do I need to pre register for the local (Burlington Ma Chapter) chapter meetings? And is it appropriate for me to attend even though I am not working in the coding field yet?. I am finishing a coding certificate program and I will be sitting for the CPC-A exam in Oct. I thought that attending a meeting would give me a good opportunity to network with others already in the field as well as keep up with current coding information. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
