Will you be hosting any in-person events in 2020?
We are not hosting any in-person events for the remainder of the year. We will deliver the 2020 agenda through a virtual platform. Please note, we are not running an event for an individual city as done previously. This new virtual delivery is a great opportunity for you to connect with EAs in multiple cities and expand your network. We are combining the forums, and dates will be released soon along with an updated agenda! Make sure you get that release email by adding us to your safe senders list.
Who thrives at ELS Forum?
High-performing EAs (like you, obviously!) who are serious about advancing their career, improving productivity, and positively influencing their executive, organization, and self.
What does a Virtual ELS Forum look like?
We’re providing the same exciting content and educational components for you to access in real-time at home: critical soft and hard skills development; meaningful networking with leading experts and peers; inspiring self-reflection and confidence boosting; and the empowerment to find your voice, gain a new perspective, and take the next important steps towards your greatness.
This sounds great! How do I register for the Virtual ELS Forum?
We’d be happy to assist you in getting registered for the event. Shoot us an email when you’re ready!
I'll need an approval letter for my exec. Can you provide one?
Absolutely! Just click here to shoot us an email. Done and done!
Do you offer group discounts?
Sure do! Email us and we’ll get you and your crew set up.
Is ELS Forum certified for continuing education credits?
Yes! The forum has been approved for recertification points from the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP.) How cool is that? We can also provide attendees with the ELS certificate of attendance. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding this.
What happens if I already registered for a 2020 forum?
Your registration is already transferred to our first virtual event in July. Once we release the event dates, you’ll have the opportunity to transfer to a different date if preferred. We’ll see you there!
Can I get refunded since the in-person forum is canceled?
Registration is non-refundable, but you are welcome to send a colleague to attend in your place. We are also able to provide you with a credit note for a future event. For changes in your registration or questions regarding this, please contact us as soon as possible.
Can I use a credit note towards the virtual event?
Yes! Please present your credit note to our team, and we will finalize your registration.
*I’m attending a virtual event. What do I need to know?
How do I access the virtual event?
You will need to download the ELS Events mobile app. Open this link for direct download options. If you don’t feel comfortable using the link, please search for “Executive Leadership Support” in the app store.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, find your specific event. A week prior to the event, we will provide the event access code and details for the happy hour where we’ll go over how to use the app and all the great features!
What technology/equipment do I need to participate?
Though you are able to do everything with just your phone, we recommend you view the sessions on your computer or tablet while using your phone for other features, i.e. polling, submitting questions for instructors, etc. We are using Zoom to stream the sessions.
Will I ever need to be on camera or have a microphone?
For all sessions, attendees will automatically have their camera and mic turned off. We will make announcements for when to turn them on. We definitely want to see and hear you for the Meet & Greet Networking!
Will I get to meet and interact with other attendees and instructors?
Yes! We strongly encourage you to! There are a number of ways to connect with other participants within the ELS Events app, and we’ll show you how to do that during the “How To” happy hour. There are also dedicated networking sessions built into the agenda so you can chat face-to-face.
Can I access the materials and recordings if I can’t attend the event live?
Materials will be available within the app as well as on a Google Drive. We will provide the link to the drive after the event takes place. Recordings of the instructor-led sessions will only be available within the app for a limited time.
