F A Q
What is the advantage of Early Bird registration?
How does this year’s virtual conference work?
The conference will take place over the course of 7 days.
All live-attending students receive a link to view the recorded video of their registered Workshops through June 1, 2022. Attendees also have the opportunity to purchase additional videos for any Workshop recorded through June 1, 2022.
Full-week attendees also receive discounted rates on mini-classes and additional Workshop recording purchases.
How much will the conference cost?
How can we know which teacher is teaching what course and if they are 1,2, or 3 days?
Conference attendees pick their Workshops in Day increments- any combination adding up to 5; five 1-day Workshops, two 2-day + one 1-day Workshops, three 1-day + one 2-day Workshops, one 3-day + two 1-day Workshops.
How long are the Workshops?
When do Workshops begin?
Workshops are scheduled to begin July 3rd through July 9th. Tune Up and Mini-classes begin July 2nd. July 10th has been designated a Technical Make-up day.
How long are Mini-classes and when do they begin?
Do I need to make any preparations prior to the start of conference?
As all offerings are virtual, preparing your work area, tools, sound and internet connection (200 Mbps is a good connection) are the best way to prepare for conference events.
