FAQ

Due to health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), our chapter has decided to move to a virutal format for the 2021 meeting. In the spirit of our chapter values we will “adapt and overcome!”

How do I find and access which sessions will be virtual?

All sessions will be held virtually. Join links will be available in the Virtual Meeting Hub. Only registered attendees who are logged in will be able to access these links.

I cannot access my ACPonline account or I do not have an ACPonline account.

If you have any difficulty accessing your ACP account, you can reset your username and password. You can do so by clicking on the MyACP link at the top of the ACP web site. Nonmembers are advised to use their e-mail address as their username when creating a password. If you require additional assistance, please contact us (M-F, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET) via web chat or call 800-ACP-1915 or 215-351-2600 or via e-mail at help@acponline.org

Will attendees be able to ask questions or participate in the session, or is the session just going to consist of streamed presentations?

We are aiming to make options available that include attendee interaction options like a live chat window and/or polling. We would like for sessions to be interactive when possible and desired.

Cancellation Policy

Notice of cancellation must be made in writing (fax, mail, or e-mail). Cancellations will not be accepted by telephone. A processing fee of $100 will be deducted from the member’s refund. Individuals who fail to attend the course (no-shows) will not be entitled to any refund.

Will sessions be recorded and archived for later consumption?

The meeting will be recorded and available for playback for one year.
