*A reservation is required in advance of the program. Registrants will receive a confirmation e-mail the day of the event which will contain a link to join the meeting via Zoom and links for the Handout Material and CLE Attendance Form.
**Registrations made before 5:00 p.m. on the day before the webinar will pay the Regular Registration fee. Late registrations will be accepted from 5:01 p.m. the day before the program until one hour before the webinar. An additional fee of $5 will apply when paying during late registration. Call (865) 522-6522 with questions.
1. You can join this meeting with almost any device. For mobile devices, find the Zoom Meetings on the App Store or Google Play Store and pre-install. For a desktop or laptop computer, the link to pre-install is: https://zoom.us/download. You can then leave the meeting and then re-join again at the appointed meeting time. Absent a computer or mobile device, you can just join with a telephone call (audio only), but the best meeting experience by far is to use a computer or iPad, so you can see others and what is being presented.
2. For computer/mobile device connection: If you don’t already have the Meetings app installed, you will be prompted to do a quick installation when you click the meeting link. Once installed, you don’t need to “sign in” or “create an account”, you just need to join the meeting. Only the host of a meeting has to have an account. Once you join with your computer, you will be asked if you want to use the computer audio or dial in by telephone for your audio. You can use computer audio if you have a headset or are on a mobile device or laptop with camera/mic – webcams are encouraged; otherwise, dial in via telephone for your audio, following the on-screen instructions.
3. If you encounter any technical difficulties at all during the meeting, and it is persistent, sometimes it is best just to leave the meeting and then rejoin it. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions as a result of the test above, just contact the KBA Office well before the meeting so that we can resolve.
Reservations cancelled less than 48 hours before the program, for either the live or webinar format, are subject to the penalty of the entire amount. However, you may transfer your registration to another individual.
