Everyone needs to reserve a ticket by registering for the event in advance.
*** You may be prompted to sign in to Zoom. If you don’t already have a free (or paid) Zoom user account and cannot use a ‘Single Sign On’ (SSO) or a ‘Log in …’ from another major platform, you need to ‘Sign Up Free’ for a Zoom account before you can register for the event. (N.B. You may ‘Opt out’ of getting added to Zoom advertising mailing lists.)
In case you sign up for an actual Zoom user account, you will receive a message from Zoom asking you to ACTIVATE the account. Once it is activated, you can proceed to ‘Register’ for our event.***
AT REGISTRATION for an event ticket, you need to check the box that you agree with Zoom conditions and policies.
You may uncheck the box that would let Zoom share your email with the event hosts, however both TSK and FGS never sell, loan or share personal information with any third party.
The third check box lets you opt in to use the Zoom Summit ‘LOBBY’ before and after the meeting. You can think of it as a temporary chat group about the topic of the event. More about it later, but we highly recommend that you try it for testing your set up before the meeting if you do not regularly use Zoom.
To protect the event from disruptions and vandalism ‘General Public’ ticket holders can watch and listen only. They need to submit questions in writing through the ‘Q&A’ Zoom feature.
***Please add this address to your email address book—or whitelist it—to avert messages from Zoom getting deleted or hidden out of sight in your SPAM or JUNK box.***
(If you do not receive order confirmation within 24 hours, please check your JUNK box.)
You also will receive automatic REMINDERS 1 day and 1 hour before the event.
The confirmation and reminder messages will include a ‘JOIN’ button to connect at the time of the event. This button IS your personal ticket to attend.
If you are unfamiliar with Zoom you may want to use the Join button well before the actual event to test your connection. It will let you join our ZOOM Event ‘Lobby’ where you may use ‘Chat’ messages to confer with other event attendees.
Apart from pre-event verification of connectivity and browser functions, the main purpose of the Lobby is to facilitate post-event discussion of the topic with other attendees. You might ask additional questions, too. Although speakers are not required to pay any attention to the Lobby, other attendees might be willing to answer or direct you to additional resources. The Lobby will be open for 30 days after the event.
