Virtual Conference FAQs

 

When is the event?

The Corporate Financial Reporting Insights Conference is a six-day virtual conference that will take place Monday, November 2; Wednesday, November 4; Monday, November 9; Wednesday, November 11; Monday, November 16; and Wednesday, November 18. Each day of the conference will start at 10:00 am Eastern.


How do I access the event?

Once registered, a link to the virtual conference hub will be sent to the email that you used during registration within 24 hours prior to each day of the conference. This link can be used for all six days of the conference.

Click around! Explore the Engagement Hub and all of the sessions in store. Scroll through each carousel to view the sessions happening on a given day. You’ll see titles, speakers, companies, and start times.


How do I log in?

Click into individual sessions to learn more about the presentation, speaker, start time, and duration. This is also where you’ll be asked to register or log in. Since you’re already registered, simply log in with the email address you used to register for the conference. No password is required. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be able to add specific sessions to your personal online calendars and attend the sessions when they go live.


When and how will sessions start?

You’ll be able to enter each session room 15 minutes prior to its start time. The session will begin automatically at its designated start time. You don’t have to click anything. Just sit back, relax, and learn!

Please note: If you miss a session, don’t worry! Sessions will be available for viewing on-demand* within approximately 30 minutes of their start time. You’ll find them back in the Engagement Hub when they’re ready to be replayed.

*On occasion, a presenter may not permit FEI to make their session available for on-demand replay.


What are the requirements for earning CPE credits?

To be eligible for CPE credit, you must:

  • Answer at least 3 of the 4 polling questions during each session and have a total viewing time of at least 50 minutes.
  • Participants will have the opportunity to download their CPE certificate immediately following the session if above requirements are met.
  • In accordance with the standards for the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, CPE credit will be granted based on a 50-minute hour.

Once these requirements have been met, you will be able to download the CPE certificate in the session via the CPE widget. You will also receive an email with a link to the CPE certificate.

Unfortunately, we're unable to grant CPE credit in cases where technical difficulties disqualify eligibility due to the CPE Program Sponsorship guidelines.

 


Can I get a copy of the PowerPoint presentation?

Yes! If a speaker has made their powerpoint presentation available for download, check out the Resources widget in the session room to download a PDF version of the presentation and any additional materials from the speaker.


What can I do to ensure an optimal viewing experience?

Disable your pop-up blocker and enable Flash (most sessions require it). If you enabled Flash but still see an error message, try refreshing your browser. If you’re having bandwidth issues, use a hardwired Internet connection if possible.


What do I do if I can’t see the presentation or hear the speaker?

Try refreshing your browser. Ensure your speakers / computer audio is activated. Use the Q&A box in each session room to ask a member of the support team for additional help.


What do I do if I have questions for the speaker?

Use the same Q&A box! Speakers will follow up with you via email after the session.


I am not available for all six days of the conference. Is there a single-day registration option?

Sessions approved by speakers will be available for on demand viewing within 24 hours of the live session. CPE requirements for each session can be completed by December 31, 2020. Single-day registration is not available.


What is the refund policy?

Cancellation requests must be made via email to FEI's Professional Development Department at least two business days prior to the event to receive a refund. Requests made less than two business days prior to the event will result in a credit balance. Credit balances expire and are forfeited after six months from the cancellation date. Another individual may substitute for your registration.
