This is a live workshop and is available for live CE credit.
Our goal is to make this as interactive an experience as possible for those who attend virtually by zoom. Please expect to share your webcam and unmute yourself to ask questions and make comments, just as you would if you were to attend in person. There will be someone in each workshop room who is monitoring zoom attendees and who will alert the presenter to questions or comments from virtual attendees.
Please alert the room monitor to your question or comment by typing a “?” In the chatbox and then wait to be called on. You will then be able to unmute your microphone and ask your question or make your comment. If you do not have a microphone, please type your question or comment in the chatbox and the room monitor will read it aloud to the presenter. Whenever possible, we prefer that you share your webcam when asking a question so the presenter and in-person attendees can see you, making for a nicer experience for all 🙂
