Accessing the Virtual Conference

How Does a Virtual Conference Work?

This virtual conference will be presented using the Zoom video conference tool. Each presentation is 50 minutes long and will be presented live.  Staff from the joint NEAFA and PRO-DAIRY conference committee will assist with discussion and live Question & Answer (Q&A) session. 

The entire virtual conference will be recorded and registered participants will receive a link to these recordings within 5 days after the event.

Live Q&A

Our speakers will give their presentation in (2) 20-minute segments, each followed by a brief 5-minute Q&A session.  We will use the integrated Q&A feature which allows attendees to ask questions during the webinar and for speakers to answer their questions.  You can even upvote another attendee's question ! 

Live Chat

In addition to the live Q&A, an integrated chat feature will allow attendees, the host, co-hosts and speakers to communicate for the duration of the virtual conference.  Use the chat box for group or private discussions with fellow participants or technical questions related to conference connection.

How to Test Joining a Zoom Meeting

If you have a slower internet speed, if may be useful to connect to Zoom through your computer for the video and screen views, but then use your landline or cell phone to connect to audio (rather than through your computer).  Zoom can call your phone or you can dial into Zoom for the audio.  Phone numbers are included in confirmation emails to registered participants.
