On the agenda page, select a session and click the “Broadcast” button under the session title. Broadcast will become available two minutes before the scheduled session start time.
When you click the “Broadcast” button, you may be prompted to login in order to join the session. Please make sure to use the email with which you are registered for the conference to log in.
Once you click “Login” a new page will open asking for the email address used to register your ticket.
HOW DO I MOVE BETWEEN SESSIONS?
When a session ends, or if you decide to switch to a different breakout session, click the “Back” button to return to the agenda. You can then enter any other in progress session by clicking the “Broadcast” button for that session on the agenda.
The agenda includes at least a fifteen-minute break between each set of sessions, to allow time to navigate to the next session. We will also break for an hour for lunch each day.
All sessions will also be recorded and will be available to watch through the Agenda when available.
HOW DO I RESERVE A SEAT FOR A SESSION?
It is not required to reserve a seat in order to attend a session. However, we would encourage you to reserve your seat for sessions you plan to attend so we may plan accordingly. Please choose which concurrent session you will attend on Thursday afternoon. On the agenda, click the seat icon on the left hand side of the session you plan to attend.
Selected sessions will be added to the “My Registered Session” list, found at the top of the agenda page.
You will only be able to save a seat for one session of concurrent breakouts. To change your selection, first unselect your existing session by clicking on the seat icon again and then click the seat icon for the session you wish to attend.
HOW CAN I ASK QUESTIONS DURING A SESSION?
Our sessions will include time for audience Q&A. To ask your questions, please navigate to the right of the where your speaker is broadcasting, and type your question where indicated. Once your question is ready, click send.
Please note that in most cases, we will be saving time at the end for Q&A, rather than answering questions throughout.
IF I HAVE TROUBLE JOINING A SESSION, WHO SHOULD I CONTACT?
First, we recommend checking the instructions listed in Bizzabo’s Attendee Troubleshooting Guide. Also, NOVA has arranged for additional live chat support for our attendees on the mornings of Wednesday October 21, 2020 and Thursday October 22, 2020. If you have any problems logging in – chat support will be able to help you.
WILL THE SESSIONS BE RECORDED?
Yes, the sessions will be recorded. All registrants will have access to the recordings following the event. We will notify you via email when the recordings are available.
HOW DO I SIGN IN FOR CLE?
Just like with an in-person conference, we need you to sign in to verify attendance for your CLE credits. We will have an attendance verification code assigned to each day, that every presenter will share during their presentations. Make sure to make a note of these as you will need them to complete the virtual sign in process.
Once you have your code, at any point throughout the day you can sign in. Navigate to the event website and find the “Sign In” tab on the top menu for the appropriate day:
When you click on the sign in page, you’ll be brought to your sign in page where we ask that you enter your First Name, Last Name, email, and verification code. Please only sign in once for each day. Please do not sign in before you have the attendance verification code, your ticket number is NOT the verification code.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE CONFERENCE MATERIALS?
Conference materials have been emailed via Citrix Share File. You will receive an email that the National Organization of Veterans' Advocates has shared a folder with you to the email with which you registered. Click HEREfor instructions on how to download.
*Please note: Please be sure to open the materials using an Adobe Acrobat reader to access any attachments via the paperclip tab.

The sound is coming out of a different device than I want - what can I do?
To toggle between multiple outputs connected to your device (e.g. internal speakers, headphones and AirPlay), click the gear icon ⚙️on the top right of the live-streamed session. You will then be able to select which output and input devices should be used.
The output device I want to use isn't showing up - how can I fix this?
First, check the physical connection to your device, by either unplugging and re-connecting your physical headphones, or toggling bluetooth on and off.
If you are confident that the output device is connected correctly, check your system preferences to ensure your computer recognizes the device. On a Windows device, click the loudspeaker icon on the bottom right of your screen, and you'll be able to change output device. On a Mac, visit System Preferences > Sound to choose your output devices.
My devices are connected properly, but I can't hear anything!
If you're confident everything is connected properly, your devices might be being used by another tool or application. Make sure tools like Zoom, Google Hangouts, Go To Meeting etc. have been closed prior to starting the session.
I'm still experiencing issues - any final steps?
If you're still having issues, first send in your support logs by hitting the ⚙️in the top right, then "submit support logs" on the bottom left. Next try restarting your computer and trying again.
