As with any changes, you may find your registration or participation process a little different at first. Be sure to register in advance so we can best assist you with this upgraded experience! What changes can you expect?

A new registration process using your Zoom profile

You’ll be prompted to sign in using your Zoom account. When registering, you must log in with the Zoom account you’ll use on the day of the webinar. Access to the webinar and confirmation details will only go to the e-mail associated with this Zoom account. If needed, you can easily create a new Zoom account for free.

Once you register, check your zoom account email for confirmation and mark the webinar(s) in your calendar using this calendar item. You’ll be prompted to add each session in the webinar series to your calendar. We recommend you turn on reminders so you don’t miss the webinars! Note: you can simply drag the calendar item to your Outlook agenda or Gmail agenda and edit the preferred reminder time.

Note: Confirmation and reminder emails will be sent from Zoom using the following email address: noreply-zoomevents@zoom.us. Make sure you add this email address to your contact list, so it won’t go to your junk mail folder.

A new group registration procedure

The group rate is only available when 5 people or more from the same organization register for the same webinar series.

Previously, one person could register several team members on their behalf using the same registration page and make one single payment. It is not possible anymore. From now on, each group member will need to register and pay independently. Important: Each group member must register with their email address associated with their Zoom account, or each would have to create a new account if they don’t have one. You must get invoiced if your organization wants to make one single payment. Contact us at , and we’ll inform you of the invoice procedure. Payment Policy:  Please note that payment must be received within 30 days to complete your registration.
