10 Ways to Get the Most Out of the Annual Meeting
Step 1: Register early – You'll save money and be able to plan what sessions and events you'll attend.
Step 3: Get familiar with the Online Program – Familiarize yourself with how the platform is structured before the meeting. Check out sessions, events and presenters, learn who's attending, and build your schedule.
Step 4: Plan your visit to the Virtual Expo – Learn more about exhibiting companies in the Virtual Expo.
Step 5: Build your schedule – You don’t want to miss the Opening General Session, dedicated hours with exhibitors at the Virtual Expo or screenings at the Film Festival. View everything that is taking place and sessions and events to your schedule. Take advantage of the breaks between sessions to relax or use this time to network.
Step 6: Practice your dance moves — The virtual APHA Dance Party will take place on Sunday, Oct. 25. Learn the dance!
Step 7: Network like a pro – For new or previous attendees, don't miss the Navigate and Network new attendee orientation on Sunday before the opening. You'll learn how to maximize your time at the meeting and learn to network like a pro. Check out these tips.
Step 8: Stay healthy – APHA’s Wellness Center provides you with activities and tools that promote physical and mental wellness. Relax, renew and refresh during the busy meeting and take breaks away from your screens. More information on the Million Minutes Challenge coming soon!
Step 9: Voice your thoughts – Join the conversation on social media by using #APHA2020 in your posts and tweets. Follow the APHA Annual Meeting on Twitter: @APHAAnnualMtg or APHA on other social media platforms. Read the Annual Meeting Blog to stay connected before, during and after the meeting.
Step 10: Don’t let the meeting end – Learning and networking doesn’t end when the meeting does. Attendees will have access to meeting content for an extended period after the meeting ends, so watch sessions at your pace. Take advantage of time during the meeting to network with other attendees and be sure to share what you learned.
