An invitation to the webinar will be sent to the email address used during registration the day before the scheduled session and will include attachments to all related handouts and material.

 

What platform will be used for the APT 2020 Educational Series?

Live sessions and discussion groups will be conducted using Zoom.

 

If I am attending for multiple sessions, will the Zoom link and password be different each session? 

Yes, each session will have a unique Zoom code and password which we will email to you.

 

Will I be able to see the presenters for each session?

Yes, you will be able to see both the speaker and slides.

 

Do I need to have my video on?

Attendees MUST have their camera on so APT can verify the presence of each attendee throughout the session.

 

How can I ask questions during the event?

The Question & Answer (Q&A) feature on our Zoom webinars allows you to ask questions during the webinar for the panelists, speakers, co-hosts and hosts.


Will I be able to access recordings of the workshops?

No recordings will be available after sessions. In order to receive full CE credit attendees must be present during the workshop/s they register for.

 

Can I share my virtual conference login information with other members colleagues?

No, your login information is unique to your individual registration. For every paid registration to attend virtually, only that registered attendee will be allowed to enter the virtual conference.

 

I am not very tech-savvy. Will there be online help if I run into issues during the event?

Absolutely, we will be holding a “session before the session” in which attendees can check that their cameras and speakers are working and troubleshoot issues before the actual session. Staff will be available during the session if issues arise. If you are new to Zoom you can view Zoom's page about Joining a Meeting.
