September 2020 Virtual NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference
September 3, 2020 | 8:00 AM – 11:30 AM (Central Time)
The September 3 NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference is quickly approaching and is set to offer several unique opportunities for virtual interaction. Though hosting the event virtually changes the way attendees communicate, the conference has adapted to continue to provide the interaction with other attendees and presenters our members expect.
- Live Questions & Answers: Zoom’s Q&A feature allows guests to type a question and receive real-time responses from the presenter. This is an excellent way to actively participate in the conversation and expand on the content being presented.
- Raise Hand: Zoom also offers the opportunity for attendees to “raise their hand” at which point they can be unmuted by the host and share their questions or comments with the group. This is a more personal option that gives speakers a better understanding of the audience they’re presenting to.
- Chat: When you have a comment but don’t want to interrupt the presentation, you can use the chat box to share your thoughts with panelists and attendees. This space is great for adding supplemental insights and information to continue the conversation forward as well as introducing yourself and making valuable connections with other attendees.
- Polling: As another way of gathering audience feedback, Zoom offers polls that attendees can easily respond to. After voting, the results can be made visible to attendees to jump start discussion.
