Our conference events will be hosted on Zoom. We will email you all the Zoom links one week prior to the start of the event.

You do not need a Zoom account to attend your session but for the best user experience, we recommend that you use the Zoom application and have it installed in advance by downloading it from https://zoom.us/download.

Please make sure you have the latest version of the Zoom app installed on your computer by logging into the app, clicking the coloured icon in the upper right corner of the Zoom window, and scrolling down to Check for Updates. If you're all up to date, great! If not, install away!

As a reminder, you can mute and unmute yourself using the microphone icon in the lower-left corner of your Zoom screen, and you can turn your video on or off using the video button in the lower-left corner of your screen. Please arrive on time for your sessions as they will begin promptly and remember to keep yourself muted unless you are speaking so that you don't disrupt the presentations.


If you require help, email us at: psac53@bctf.ca

Check our website: latabc.com for updates, presenter handouts and for access to the Zoom links.

We hope that you have a great day at the conference.

Thank you,
