FAQs

What is the registration process like?

ASIS&T uses GoToMeetings for all of its webinars.  When you register at ASIS&T for a webinar, you’ll use a specific link to register at GoToMeetings.  Once ASIS&T approves your registration (and processes your payment if you’re not a member), GoToMeetings will email you an invitation with detailed instructions about how to access the webinar.

Are webinars free?

For ASIS&T members, yes, almost all webinars are free.  Non-members typically pay $15-$25 per webinar.  The minimum cost to host a webinar for your ASIS&T chapter or SIG is $50.  For more information, please contact Stephan.

Can I become a member and register for free?

Absolutely!  We love new members!  Once you become a member, you’ll be able to login to the ASIS&T website and click on the member link.

How long do webinars usually last?

Presentations are usually 45-50 minutes with a 10 minute Q&A session.

Can I ask questions?

Yes, you may type your questions any time during the webinar.  The presenter(s) will choose the questions they’ll answer for a 10-15 minute Q&A session after the presentation.

Can I use a PC, MAC, iPhone or Android device?

Yes, you can use a PC, MAC or any mobile device (GoToMeeting app download required).  Please review these system requirements before your webinar.

Will I have access to the webinar after it’s over?
