2020 Conference Registration
We'll only be gathering virtually this year...
Despite our best efforts and those of our long-time friends at the Austin Doubletree, we are unable to provide live conferences this year that will accommodate our growing number of attendees while ensuring their safety and that of speakers and staff. All of our fall events will only be available virtually.
While we will miss seeing each of you, we're working on not only providing an exceptional faculty and must-see sessions, we are also exploring ways in which we can increase interaction between attendees and speakers. Stay tuned for more details as we put those ideas to work.
Among the benefits of a virtual conference is the ability for an attendee to see every session and do so at a convenient time during our conference window. Beginning on the date of each conference, registered attendees will be able to stream sessions in any order they wish, as many times as they wish, during the following three weeks. The only exceptions will be the two live Q&A's with speakers and a few other surprises built into the two scheduled conference days.
What about the famous CESD Conference Notebooks?
As always, each participant will receive a complete set of all of the handouts from each of the conference sessions. Rather than providing them in notebook form, the handouts will be available as a single PDF file for a single download, or as smaller files that participants may download as they prepare to watch a session.
Since participation is not limited to the two days of the scheduled conference, the typical life and work events that interfere with attendance will not prevent viewing the sessions over the three week window. As a result, no refund, cancellation of a purchase order, or transfer to the next conference will be made. To substitute another person for a registrant at an event, please contact CESD prior to the event at 512-219-5043 with the name and email address of the person who will be substituting for you.
Individuals with disabilities with special communication or other needs should advise CESD of those needs at the earliest possible date in order that their needs may be addressed. CESD will seek to provide reasonable accommodations where needed.
Continuing Education Credit
Both conferences meets the C.E. standards for 10.0 hours for both the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists (§461.11) and LPC’s by CESD, Texas LPC Pre-approved Provider #193. In addition to these credits, for the Dyslexia Conference only, an application is filed for 10.0 clock hours CEU by the Academic Language Therapy Association (ALTA).
So how will virtual conferences work?
Upon receipt and processing your registration, CESD will forward an email to each registrant confirming registration and provide you with instructions for verifying your email address. Your correct email address is critical as email verification is required to access the website pages that include the conference session links.
The week before your event begins, CESD will email a link to the conference page. Follow the link or paste it into your browser. On the first day of the conference (or pre-conference) the session page for the conference (or pre-conference) will go live. The email link will take you to the Virtual Conference Ballroom where you will be asked for the email address you provided at registration and a short unique CESD Password. The use of email verification and CESD Password ensure that only registered attendees access the conference. Your CESD Password and Registration Email Address will appear at the top of your registration confirmation email, and at the top of the email you receive a week before your event.
It's that simple.
