HOW TO REGISTER

Webinars will be hosted through Zoom.  You do not need a Zoom account, but you will need to join the webinar via a computer with a good internet connection. 

You will be asked to respond to some quiz “poll” questions at various points during or following each presentation. Although you can join the webinars via a mobile phone, you may not be able to respond to the “poll” questions. Computer connection is recommended.

Once you register, Zoom will send an e-mail message with a UNIQUE Link. Do not share this Link, as it is connected to your name and license number.  

Remember to type in your e-mail address carefully. If you do not receive the Zoom e-mail message immediately after registering, contact the OACFA office.  

The length of time your computer is connected to the Zoom Link will be tracked and recorded to verify attendance; however, you do not need to stay connected during the lunch hour.

You must register for each webinar separately. Cost of each webinar is $65

Registration payments are processed via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account. After being transferred to PayPal, look for the option Pay with Debit or Credit Card.

During the webinar you will not be on screen or have access to audio. Only the presenters and their PowerPoint presentations will be on screen.  Questions may be submitted by typing into the Q&A box.

The day before the webinar you will receive a reminder. If you do not find this message or have not saved your Zoom Link, contact the OACFA office:  info@oacfa.com or call: 503-370-7024.
