Typical Q and A:

1. What if I cannot make the start time for this webinar?  You can join us at any time. Afterwards, you will receive a copy of the entire presentation, including the audio portion. This will enable you to review the material, or if necessary, catch up on anything you may have missed.

2. Will I receive a copy of the Powerpoint prior to the start of the webinar?  We will do everything in our power to make this happen!!

3. Will there be background noise from the other people on the line that interferes with whether or not I am able to listen to the speaker?  We do everything we can to prevent this. One way is that we mute everyone while the speaker is talking.

4. Is there an opportunity for me to ask questions?  Definitely YES!  You may ask a question at any time by writing your question in the space provided. The speaker will answer it at an appropriate time. At some points, we will unmute specific participants who have their hand up to ask a question.

A webinar?  What is it?

In a webinar, you stay at home, or wherever you want, and you use your own computer. You log in at the specific day and time -- and then you listen and participate.

The vital aspect is that you must be preregistered.  After you register here at Eventbrite, your name will be placed on the log with GotoWebinar and they will email you the instructions you need. These will contact a special log in code that you use to log in at the appropriate time.   You may use a phone and/or a computer; however, the computer allows you to also see the PowerPoint Presentations. The phone or a USB microphone on your computer allows you to talk to the presenter and others.
