Digital Proceedings CoverEach year, we send out an email we like to call the “Know Before You Go.” This email contains the basic information that will help you successfully navigate your convention experience. This year, we’re also putting it on the newsfeed. You can bookmark this link and refer to it any time.

New This Year: Proceedings will only be available in Digital Format.

You can download your proceedings ahead of time, load them onto your preferred device(s), and even print them if you like having a hard copy. (Tip: If you want them primarily for taking notes, you can also just print the sessions you plan to attend.) For those of you who attended BES and/or CBES, you are old hands at this process. There will also be flash drives of the proceedings at registration.

  1. Log into your RCI Portal account.
  2. Under “My Profile” select “My Digital Library.” See image below.
  3. Select  “Convention 2019 Proceedings” folder.
  4. Upon opening the folder you will have access to the PDF files of the Proceedings and the RCI CEH and AIA LU/HSW reporting forms.

We strongly suggest you download your proceedings ahead of time. If you have any trouble getting into your portal, email or call RCI HQ at 919-859-0742. Wi-Fi is not available in all areas of the hotel, so if you’ve already saved your proceedings to your device, you’ll be one step ahead. We also recommend you download the app ahead of time. You can look through the sessions, and make yourself a schedule if you’re the plan-ahead type.
