ICFA 42: Update on Program Release Date
I wanted to provide you with a quick update about when the program will go live with the links to presentations!
The deadline to have conference presentations uploaded to our system was 23 February 2021. However, due to the power and life disruptions across much of Texas and other parts of the United States, we offered extensions for those who needed them, and therefore the link to upload will remain open until next week.
I was hoping that I could meet the original deadline of 1 March 2021 to release the program with the live links to the presentations; However, because of the extension, and in an effort to keep from overloading your inbox with multiple versions of the program, it is likely that I will not be able to send the program with the live links until 5 March 2021. Even though this is four days later than our original plan to get the program to you, it will still give you a full two weeks to view all of the amazing presentations that are planned for this year! (NB: Only those registered for the conference will receive the program with the live links.)
Once you receive the program, you will see that I have embedded all of the presentation titles with a link to the corresponding presentation. When you find a presentation that you would like to view, all you will have to do is click the title of the presentation and it will take you directly to it! (NB: The volume of the presentation is set by the person who uploaded the presentation, and there may be some presentations that will require you to adjust the volume on your end.)
I will update the program one more time after 5 March 2021 to add in a direct link to the “room” where each session is being held, and then email it to everyone who is registered for the conference! Once that is sent out, and once the conference officially begins, all you will have to do is click on the title of the session you want to attend, and it will take you into the room where the session is being held!
Thank you all for being so kind and understanding as we work to bring you the best virtual conference we can!
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
