Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean “This is a virtual event?”

That is a great question! Due to the COVID 19 restrictions on large gatherings and our concerns for everyone’s safety, we made the decision to change this event to a virtual event. It means that you will attend this event from your home computer, perhaps with friends or family and “visit” the different areas we have set up.

How does a virtual event work?

If you register for this event, we will send you the address of the website where it will be hosted, along with clear instructions on how it will all work. You will get those instructions ahead of time and there will be staff available via email or phone to help you on the day of the event. When you arrive at the event homepage, you will see a variety of different areas that you can visit and get more information. These areas might have videos, or resources or even a live chat feature. Have fun exploring!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
