FAQ

Due to rapidly escalating health concerns related to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), our chapter has come to the difficult decision to move to virtual for the 2020 meeting. In the spirit of our chapter values to “adapt and overcome,” we have decided to move to a virtual event.

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

Sessions that are virtual will be marked as such in the Maine Chapter Virtual Meeting Hub. Only registered attendees who are logged in will be able to access these links.

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.

Will sessions be recorded and archived for later consumption?

The meeting will be recorded and available for playback for one year from the CME claim date.

For other questions about the virtual meeting, contact Warene Chase-Eldrige at 207-215-7118 or MaineChapterACP@gmail.com.
