To participate in a webinar delivered through GoToWebinar, register by clicking on the link provided on the Participatory Webinars page. Click on Register Online, provide the information requested, and click Register. You will receive a confirmation email with a unique link to join the webinar. Do not share the Join URL with anyone else. Click Add to calendar to duplicate the information in your electronic calendar. Visit the Get Ready page to test your system and to verify the software has downloaded.

A few minutes before the webinar begins, click the Join Webinar button in the confirmation email or your calendar entry. If you arrive before the organizer, you will see a window confirming that you have successfully connected.

During live webinars, you may listen to the audio over your telephone (using the phone number listed with the webinar link) or through your computer’s speakers.

When participating in a live webinar, you may be required to provide a name to enter the webinar room. Please note that the name you enter will be visible to all participants in the webinar and we will use it to call on you if you have a question.
