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 will be marked on the Chapter Web site as virtual and found in the virtual meeting gallery. We will add a link for the audience to join virtual sessions in the online session gallery. 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?

Yes, meetings will be recorded and available for playback for 6 months.

For other questions about the virtual meeting, contact Delaney Mielke at 414-488-3910 or delaney@acpwi.org.
