The registration fee includes live attendance at the two plenary sessions and ten workshops, as well as access to recordings of all 20 workshop sessions and both plenary sessions. Pre-conference institutes are available, both live and recorded, for an additional fee. Opportunities to interact with colleagues online will be available during breaks and in the AFCC Virtual Hospitality Suite.
AFCC recommends using a desktop or laptop computer to take full advantage of Zoom’s capabilities. Not only will this provide better viewing experience, it will give you access to features not available on the Zoom app on tablets and smartphones. A stable internet connection is important for the best experience. If you lose internet service, you can call into the webinar (call-in numbers will be included in your confirmation emails from Zoom) and follow the slides, which are sent in advance of each program. If you need assistance, you can always call the AFCC office at 608-664-3750.
A Zoom account is not required if you are simply joining Zoom Meetings as a participant. It may, however, be simpler to sign on if you have an account. Please note that you must sign on from your own Zoom account. If you use a Zoom account that is in someone else’s name, your attendance will not be recorded and AFCC will not be able to issue you a certificate of attendance. You can sign up for a free Zoom account here.
Please note that different countries switch from daylight saving time to standard time on different dates. All times noted in the program will be effective after November 1, 2020. As much as we tried, it was not possible to schedule all sessions for daylight hours in all countries. If times do not work for you, please remember that registration includes access to all regular conference recordings. (Pre-conference institute recordings are available for an additional charge.)
A limited number of scholarships are available. Scholarships include pre-symposium institute registration, symposium registration, access to the AFCC virtual hospitality suite, and a certificate of attendance. The application deadline was September 29, 2020. Recipients will be notified mid-October. If you have any questions, please contact AFCC Communications Coordinator, Gina Wentling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This conference brings new meaning to the old saying, “it’s five o’clock somewhere!” Wherever and whenever you are, join us for famous AFCC hospitality, whether it’s for a wee dram in the wee hours in Edinburgh, a brunchtime Bloody Mary in Australia, a happy hour cocktail in Minneapolis, or a glass of red wine by the evening fire in Boston. Non-alcoholic beverages are encouraged if you are planning to drive! Unfortunately, this year the hospitality suite is, by necessity, BYOB. Sponsored by Mediate.com.
