The Day Before:

  • Check your connection! Make sure you have the device you want to use charged and ready to go – we recommend a computer or large tablet. Make sure your internet connection is viable.
  • Find a quiet spot. As you know by now, it’s important to have a quiet spot to use for zoom throughout the day.
  • Review your material. Take once last glance at the material for your seminar. Remember – no need to memorize or be an expert! You’ll just want to be familiar enough to engage in discussion.
  • Check the schedule. Take a minute to review the schedule for the day and figure out which breakout sessions you would like to attend.

The Day of the Event:

  • Take a deep breath! Don’t stress. Be yourself, use your voice, and enjoy yourself! If you have any questions or experience technical difficulties, make sure to context us.
