IMPORTANT: Please read below for logistics on what you need for a successful connection to the webcast.

All audio seminars are conducted using the IAMSE teleconference bridge. A registered participant may be alone on the phone, be on a speaker phone in his/her office with one or two others, or dial in directly from a conference room speaker phone with full projection equipment if attending the webinar as a group. Please note - it is essential when using speaker phones that mute buttons be switched ON. The telephone line use to dial into the teleconference bridge will need to access a long distance phone call to California (USA). No software or downloads need to be made, you will simply need a telephone and internet accessible computer to participate.
