This is a "live" program. You must enter Zoom when the program is live. Once you are let into Zoom your name will be time-stamped and attendance will be counted. This action will be equivalent to showing up at the registration table at a live symposium to check-in. If your name does not appear as ever entering a live Zoom session, you will not be eligible to receive a CEU certificate.
Our CATS Virtual Team will receive a list of registered attendees. You must be a registered attendee to enter the program. Enter early to make sure you get into Zoom in a timely manner.
Attendees must use their name as the username so you can be identified for your BOC attendance. Avoid nicknames. If you are using your cell or unidentifiable username and you cannot change it, please send a Zoom message the CATS Virtual Team. Our CATS Virtual Team will also proactively message you if your username is not identifiable, you must share your name when requested or your attendance may not be counted.
No. You will not need to remain active during the entire conference. You may exit and re-enter as needed. Presentations will be recorded so you can go back and watch any sessions you missed live.
CATS is doing its best to accommodate everyone's needs this year while providing a quality educational program. We have speakers who will be presenting virtually and cannot be live in Vegas. Virtual speakers will be prepped in Zoom Room #2 (or secondary Zoom link) by our CATS Virtual Team so they are ready to start their presentation. This will provide a smoother transition between speakers.
Please refer to Counting Attendance. Once your attendance is counted and time-stamped then you may share a computer.
Everyone needs to use Slido to submit questions to speakers. These questions will be moderated in Vegas. Participants will be able to view all questions and upvote their favorite questions. Download the Slido app or visit https://www.sli.do/ and join as a participant. Meeting code: #CATS2021
Please note that questions on Zoom should be reserved for technical issues and will be managed by our CATS Virtual Team.
All available speaker handouts are available on our website. You may print preferred handouts prior to the symposium or continue to view online.
Speaker's presentation videos will be available on our website after the symposium. We will notify our members when these are available to view. You need to have an active CATS account in order to view videos.
Please remember to support our sponsors and exhibitors. There will be a raffle for attendees who participate with virtual scheduling. Ten (10) attendees will win $100 Amazon e-gift cards. For more information visit our Exhibitors page.
Once we receive the time-stamped list of participants, those individuals will receive an email to complete the CATS 2021 Symposium Participant Assessment & Program Evaluation. Once you complete this assessment, we will upload your CEU certificate to your online CATS account. If you participated in the 2020 Webinar, the process is the same. If we make the announcement that the assessment has been emailed and you have not received it, check the following: 1) your junk mail folder, 2) your institution to see if it was grey-listed, 3) you may have opt-out of receiving Survey Monkey surveys. If these don't work then please email Josephine Lee, firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
If you answered "yes" to the registration question regarding registration for NSCA CEU then your certificate will be uploaded into your CAT account post-symposium. If you did not receive your NSCA CEU certificate, please contact Josephine Lee, email@example.com or Jenny Moshak, firstname.lastname@example.org.
