Webinar Q & A


In order to hear the webinar presentation, your computer needs to be equipped with speakers. If you also want to talk and ask questions during the webinar, your computer also needs to be equipped with a microphone or you'll need to use a headset. If you don't have either, we can communicate directly with each other via a chat box located on the Go to Meeting interface so you can ask and answer questions during the webinar presentation. Within one business day of completing your webinar registration, you will receive an invitation to Basecamp on which you will find the webinar handouts and advance reading materials. Please review them before the webinar. You will receive instructions on how to login to the webinar the day before the webinar begins which will also be posted on Basecamp. Questions? Please call me at 780-695-5675.
