LOGIN/MEMBERSHIP

Do I need to login to register?
Yes. To register, you will be prompted to login with your LeadingAge Iowa username and password.  If you don’t already have an account, you will be prompted to create one.
What are the benefits of registering as a member?

As a LeadingAge Iowa member, you can register at a discounted rate for our events.  The login will automatically qualify your membership status and display the member rate for you when you register.

You may register at the LeadingAge member rate as long as your membership is current.

When I log in, my membership status shows incorrectly, What do I do?
When you register, the system will only display the pricing for your current membership status.  If you are not seeing the correct membership pricing or unsure on your current membership status, please contact LAI at 515-440-4630 or [email protected].  Once your membership has been verified, you can proceed in registering or LAI can process your registration for you.


VIRTUAL EVENT INFORMATION

When will I have access to the virtual event platform and how do I log in?
After registering and shortly before the live virtual conference, you'll receive an email with your username and password to access the virtual event platform URL.  Check our website closer to the event dates for informational videos and previews of what you can expect so you’ll be ready to engage and explore in this new virtual experience!
Which devices are best to use during the virtual experience?  Which browser and what kind of WiFi connection?

We recommend a laptop or desktop computer for the best virtual experience.  Google Chrome and Microsoft FireFox are the preferred browsers.  If you do not already have one of these, you can download Chrome or Firefox for free.  Do NOT use Internet Explorer or Safari browsers, as these will cause technical issues. 

Be sure to maximize your screen window and avoid heavy use of your internet connection such as streaming movies or having multiple applications open at the same time.  A download speed of at least 3 Mbps is recommended. You can test your connection speed for free.

Can I share my login with another colleague?
Each individual must register and pay separately to access the virtual event platform from an individual computer.  Your user email/login can only be signed in one device at the same time.  If a second user attempts the same email/password on another device they will not be able to log in.
Will there be technical support during the virtual event?
Yes, there will be a technical support chat icon in the lower right corner of the virtual event platform. 
If I have a question or am looking for something happening during the virtual event, who do I ask?
There will be an LeadingAge Iowa area in the lobby of the virtual event platform where LeadingAge Iowa staff will be on hand to answer your question.  
Will content be available on demand to access later?  For how long?
Yes. All registered attendees will have access to the platform and content during the on-demand period after the live virtual experience until Nov. 30, 2020.  Registrants will also be able to continue contacting other attendees, exhibitors and sponsors.


EDUCATION/CE CREDITS

When will education program content be posted?
Education program descriptions are available on the website.  There is no need to select sessions during registration; you can pick and choose sessions and events you’d like to attend based on the schedule of events.
I am a speaker at an education session.  How do I register?
Speakers should contact Amy Huisman ([email protected]) regarding their virtual conference registration.
What do I need to know about obtaining CE credits on the virtual platform?

A certificate of attendance will be provided to everyone who registers for a CE eligible category; credit hours earned will be based on attendance during the live virtual experience (Sept. 15-17 and Sept. 22-24).

Be sure to check the continuing education information page for more information.

How do I ensure I obtain my CE credit?

Everyone seeking CEs must register for a CE eligible category and pay the corresponding fees; additional participants from the same organization seeking CEs must each register separately.

Individuals must participate in breakout sessions and general sessions using their unique/individual registration login/credentials; CE credit cannot be issued to multiple people sharing the same computer or login credentials. 

CE credit can only be granted to those who attend breakout sessions and general sessions on the scheduled days/times of the virtual experience; credit cannot be granted to individuals who do not attend the full 60 minutes of each presentation.

Be sure to check the continuing education information page for more information.
