Prior to the conference please make a free Zoom account at Zoom.us, and if possible, download the Zoom app for whatever device you’re planning on using to access the meeting. If you are unable to download the app, a browser-based version of Zoom is available, but you may be unable to take advantage of certain interactive features we will be using to keep this virtual conference as engaging as possible. If you are unable to join us through video, you may also call into the meeting, however, you will miss out on the visual elements of our speakers’ presentations. For any technical assistance questions feel free to reach out to our partners at 84 Agency by calling 304.250.9114 during business hours.

All sessions are password protected for the security of our presenters and participants. This password will be sent to you prior to the conference via email.

If you’d like, we have created a virtual background you can use during the meeting. You can find it on the conference page here.
