Please note that there may be a price difference in registration if the transfer is to a non-member.
What tech requirements do I need to participate in the virtual Annual Conference?
To register for – and participate in – the conference, you will need to use Google Chrome as your Internet web browser. Typically, Internet Explorer is unstable for the most up-to-date content. Presentations will be using the Zoom interface. If you are not a frequent Zoom user or you will be using a different device than normal, you may want to perform a test.
Technical Requirement: We ask that all hosts, speakers, and attendees for the 2020 ACC Virtual Annual Conference please upgrade their Zoom Client for Meetings software to version 5.3.0 or newer to ensure full compatibility with all planned sessions.
Participants should check their internet bandwidth. You can check your bandwidth with https://www.speedcheck.org/. The recommend internet speed is at least:
• Receiving 1080p HD video requires 2.5mbps (up/down)
• Sending 1080p HD video requires 3.0 Mbps (up/down)
Will sessions be live or pre-recorded?
All sessions will be live, providing opportunities for participants to ask questions of the program speakers.
Do I have access to all of the educational sessions?
In a word, yes! You will be given the opportunity to select which sessions you’d like to attend virtually – based on your registration. It is up to you to decide which sessions interest you within any given time block and to attend those sessions as desired. You may attend as many or as few sessions as you want.
Will I be able to visit exhibitors in the virtual exhibit hall?
The Annual Conference has an online virtual exhibit hall featuring exhibitors offering information, videos, and presentations on aviation products and services. Register and visit every virtual booth and be entered in raffle for a new iPad or Apple watch. A number of exhibitors will also feature prize drawings for participants visiting their booth.
Will I be able to network and meet other virtual attendees?
Yes. Some sessions will be offering live chat discussions, roundtables and forums. There will also be a networking room offered throughout the conference for people to meet and discuss ideas and thoughts. Fun, interactive team building will take place during the Escape Room Virtual Adventure. Additionally, participants can customize their communication opportunities with other attendees by uploading their photo and updating their messaging and privacy settings in their user account profile.
Will I be able to see the presenters for each session?
Yes. You will be able to see all educational session speakers along with their presentations.
Can I ask questions during the educational sessions?
We encourage you to ask questions at any time using the Zoom chat or question/answer box. Questions are then displayed to the session presenters for response during the live session or afterwards as a follow up. The social aspect of Zoom stems from the ability for all users to upvote any questions that have already been asked by someone else (upvoting is merely agreeing that a question needs to be answered by voting for its importance).
Can I record any of the sessions from the ACC virtual Annual Conference?
No individual or entity may electronically record or broadcast any portion of the 2020 ACC Virtual Annual Conference. Unauthorized recording (audio, video, still photography, etc.) of presentations during the sessions, workshops or discussions is strictly prohibited. In addition, the unauthorized copying, sharing or distribution of ACC copyrighted electronic 2020 Virtual Annual Conference material is also strictly prohibited. Thank you for your cooperation.
Where can I get a copy of the presentations from the sessions?
Copies of PowerPoint presentations and other materials provided to ACC by the speakers can be found in the Resources section.
How will I earn credits/hours for the virtual Annual Conference?
Eligible participants registered for the full three-day conference can earn 9 PDH, CM or LU/HSW credits/hours. For more information, visit the Accreditation page. The deadline for completing the required accreditation criteria to earn credits/hours is December 1st.
