FAQs

section1_head

The 2023 Winter Virtual Meetingwill be presented in a virtual, live-streamed from the Eastern Time Zone on Friday, March 3 and Saturday, March 4.

Why are you going virtual?
In order to ensure the best learner experience this year, the Foundation Board elected to offer a 100% virtual stand-alone meeting.

What platform will you be using?
The Foundation has selected the Hopin platform, to be managed by Motown Digital.

What do I need to participate in the virtual meeting?
You will need an Internet-connected device on which to view the virtual meeting platform and lectures. It is strongly recommended that you use a Windows-based PC or laptop and Google Chrome as your web browswer.  Smartphones tablets may not work. The faster your Internet connection, the smoother your experience will be, which is one reason mobile device users may encounter issues.  Motown Digital, nor the Goldfarb Foundation, recommend the above-mentioned devices and browser to ensure the smoothest online learning experience.    While no level of certainty is promised for any virtual event, choosing to use another device leaves you open to not being able to view the lecture videos and not being able to participate in the attendance verifications.

Can I just register for specific days of the virtual meeting?

All aspects of the in-person event carry over to the virtual meeting number of CECH available and event registration prices. Registration for individual days of the meeting is not available.

What does it cost to participate in the virtual event?
Registration fees begin at $300 for APMA Members, and increase by $50 after January 13.  Note that registration closes on February 22, and no exceptions to this policy or this date can be made.

How will the virtual event work?
When you register for the virtual meeting, you will receive an event confirmation email from the event registration platform, Eventsquid. Approximately two days before the start of the meeting, you will receive an email that contains the detailed instructions on how to participate in the virtual meeting.  Follow the email's instructions to obtain your personal event link.  The link is unique to you and cannot be shared. The link gives you access to the virtual event.

How will attendance verification work in the virtual platform?
Attendance verification in the virtual platform will work similarly to how it does at the live event. During the posted attendance verification times, a link will be placed in the chat box of the main stage/lecture hall virtual platform.  Attendees will click on the link and be taken to a page on the Goldfarb Foundation's website.  The page will contain an online form that each person must complete and submit.  The form will request your name, email address, date, and require a digital signature (entered with your mouse or finger).  Submitting the online form will give you a confirmation message that you can screenshot or print for your records.  The confirmation is NOT your CECH certificate; a complete certificate totaling all of your hours earned for the event will be emailed to you after the conclusion of the meeting.

When do I need to register so I can participate in the virtual meeting?
Registration for the virtual meeting will open November 15 and close on Wednesday, February 22, 2023.  The timeline allows for the final technical details of the event to be put into place. Once registration is closed for the meeting, no more registrations can be accepted.  Exceptions to this policy cannot be granted.  The early bird deadline for the meeting is Friday, January 13, 2023.
