The CE obtained
in January and February of a renewal year can be utilized for
the next renewal cycle as long as it has not been used for the
current renewal. (For instance, CE obtained at the OVMA conference
in February, 2012 could possibly be used for the renewal cycle
in 2014 if the conference was not used for renewal in 2012.)
