THANK YOU for your support! We hope to provide value and a slice of normalcy in these unprecedented times. Here is a list of questions asked by people on the fence about attending.
Where can I register?
Go to Eventbrite to register.
I can’t leave the house.
You don’t have to! This year’s conference is entirely virtual. You can attend from anywhere in the New England region, or the world, really.
How will it work?
We are setting up three virtual rooms using GoToMeeting. When you register we will send you three join URLs. You can use GoToMeeting for free from Windows or Mac computers; iOS, Android or Windows Phone devices; or the Chrome browser with no download. Important: Before 24 April, go to LogMeIn.com to download the free GoToMeeting app for desktop or mobile devices. See https://support.goto.com/meeting for more information.
The opening and closing sessions will be live-streamed from the main room. Sessions will be streamed live at scheduled times in one of the other virtual rooms. Pick the session you want to attend and join the room. After each presentation, we’ll set aside time for questions and answers as well as breaks. You can go from one room to another as you wish.
Is there special pricing for STC New England members?
Yes. See Eventbrite for ticket prices.
Who is presenting? What are the topics?
See here for the list of sessions.
These sessions sound interesting! My coworkers might benefit. Do you offer group discounts?
Yes, for three or more attendees registered from the same organization. Contact us for details.
Sorry, sounds interesting, but I’m busy that day.
See the next question…
Will the presentations be recorded?
Yes, and we will send links to registered attendees so they can view presentations for up to one year after the conference ends. You can even register, do something else that day, and watch the presentations later at your convenience.
I miss the opportunity for face-to-face networking.
So do we, but we will open a virtual “room” (not recorded) for structured and unstructured social events. You can hang out together there, or use private chats to network.
I miss the closing raffle. Will there still be swag?
We’re working on it! The closing sessions will still feature giveaways (TBD).
If I register and can’t attend, can I get a refund?
Yes, up to the day before the event. But before you ask for a refund, remember that we will make recordings available to attendees, so you’ll get what you paid for whether you attend or not.
