Frequently Asked Questions

Is the conference approved for continuing education?

The conference will be applied for continuing education for RACE and with NASW. We will keep you in the know about the approval process as the conference gets closer.

What if I have a dietary restriction? Can you accommodate special food requests?

Well, yes we can! That’s the cool thing about a virtual conference because YOU are in total control of YOUR food because it’s all in YOUR pantry!

The virtual conference platform used in the 2020 conference was easy to use and maneuver, and actually quite fun. Will the 2022 conference be the same?

YES! We too thought the platform was user-friendly so we are using the same one! You’re in luck! In fact, we’re all IN luck!

Will there be a room share option?
Well, this is certainly for you to decide, as you’ll be sleeping in your own bed! Don’t you love a virtual conference!
I work all day, and won’t be able to take time off during the day for the presentations. What can you do for me?
We LOVE virtual, because the Conference link will be open 24 hours a day for the entire conference time, as well as the next 30 days. You can watch the presentations at any time, on your schedule.
I’m still so bummed we aren’t making a trip somewhere for the conference. Can you comfort me?

I know it… we all had so much fun getting back together in Tampa. However, this was all about a business decision and being fiscally responsible to the association as in-person conferences are a bit costly. However, have you considered this: take the weekend and find a really cool Airbnb somewhere and have a bit of “me” time to focus on the conference. No home worries, just pure bliss and doing what you want, and being able to work ON your business and you versus working IN your business! You deserve it!

The conference is always the time I find new Sponsor Partners to help me in my business. How will I be able to do that with the virtual event?

You’ll still have the same opportunities to hear what’s new and exciting! Our Sponsor Partners are gearing up as well to bring their WINNING game to YOU with virtual booths and chances to visit with them in Zoom meetings or even during social hours.
